I've driven hundreds of times passed this Castle, perched high on an outcrop but, until now, had not found time to visit - but am glad I did. It's well signposted; you park up (for free) and go to the Visitors Centre - entrance to...More

The castle has great views over Staffordshire. The ancient herb gardens are interesting and if there is an event on it is worth a visit. If not you can go into Stafford to see the ancient house and shops to make up a day out.

This castle will never be the epitome of medieval culture or even the most intact castle in the area. If you after an attraction like Warwick Castle, then you will probably be disappointed in Stafford Castle. However, if you are interested in castles, then this...More

Imposing monument on top of a hill, but not much of it left. Great views of the surrounding countryside and of Stafford itself. One can even see the Wrekin in the distance.

The staff was very helpful and knowledgable. There is a good display in the museum and this is well worth a visit on its own. There is a short or a circuitous walk up to the castle which of course is a ruin. Various attempts...More
