Stafford Castle has dominated the Stafford skyline for over 900 years and should be the first port of call for all history buffs. Originally built in the Norman period, after the recent restoration Stafford Castle is considered one of the best examples of Norman architecture in the country.
Don't forget to pop into the Visitor Centre as part of your visit. It features an audio/visual display that tells the history of the castle, as well as lots of hands-on items including arms, armour and costumes. Perfect for getting the little ones excited about history.
