Great day out. Shopping. Eating. Walking. Ask at reception for a tick list, so you can find all the fairies hidden around the lake. Approximately a mile round, it is a wonderful walk through the woods. The gardens are beautifully kept. When you leave the gardens plenty of eateries a good range of choice. If you want an overnight stay a large Premier Inn is in the large car park. Trentham is easy to find, well signposted. An all round good day out. We used our Tesco vouchers to pay the entrance.

We had a couple of hours to spare on a journey back from Nottingham to North Wales and decided at the last minute to pop into the museum. What a lovely surprise it was loads better than we could of hoped for. Very interesting, interactive and enjoyable. There is something for everyone. I most enjoyed the clay pot making ( only £3 for a go...too cheap) illustration demonstration, amazing, and the toilet exhibition. I enjoyed the whole place so much I will definitely go back.

The museum is a very comprehensive resource for all things S-o-T. Lots of interesting exhibits and scenes come to life. The art gallery on the top floor has some beautiful pieces too. The scenes of every day life from the past, the spitfire room, the saxon hall, animal section and the interactice touchscreens are a perfect way to introduce children to history and ensure that adults are involved too. It's absolutely massive and holds its own against museums in bigger nearby cities.
