Summer in Staffordshire...
This Blog post has been in my head for weeks but it never seemed the right time to write it! Finally I think the time is appropriate to talk "summer" without being laughed at!
Summer in Staffordshire means an influx of visitors to Alton Towers, Drayton Manor and Trentham Estate but also a chance for us all to enjoy the unspoilt countryside for us locals too. We have a wealth of places to enjoy...canals in secluded valleys with beautiful paths and great pubs...canals around Leek are particularly beautiful and you can find day boat hire on our website. Walking is fabulous in the county and following the Staffordshire Way means you can enjoy the tops of moors and the depths of valleys all in one day! We are also great at celebrating our summer months with outdoor concerts and Festivals. Shugborough offers great events and Trentham Estate put on fabulous Saturday Night Music - outdoor entertainment for everyone. Music is a theme for the county...everything from the V Festival to Lichfield Festival....fabulous.
So in a nutshell Staffordshire just about the perfect location for a summer break, for locals to explore and friends to gather to enjoy food, ales, countryside, music, thrills and history.
