Although it is only partially present, the historical boards around the grounds and the path up to the castle hill provide a sense of experience that takes you back in time. I walked up at 5am to enjoy the sunrise just before Easter sunday and was delighted by the view....though chilly. Also loved the Stafford Fair that i attended on the grounds of the castle. The grounds themselves are covered by incredibly trees and bluebells and many grey squirrels and other small birds. A lovely place.

Stafford is a surprisingly good place to visit. We spent a fabulous afternoon walking the Tudor lined streets relaxing in the immaculate Victoria Park, lunch in the brill Soup Kitchen and browsing this stunning museum. Up the steps we had a long chat with the lovely lady (if you want to know anything she the go to person) on reception and then on up the staircase to 3 floors of room displays depicting Staffordshire life over the centuries covering the Stuart's, the Victorians Egyptian History.
