900 years of history in action - built by William the Conqueror to subdue rebellious local people, Stafford Castle has dominated the Stafford landscape over 900 years of turbulent history.

Visitors today will find a more peaceful setting - you can follow the castle trail, exploring the castle ruins and taking in the panoramic views from the hilltop, stroll in the unique medieval herb garden and discover for yourself the dramatic story behind the castle walls.

Join in the exciting events - Stafford Castle is the venue for an exciting year round programme of events from historical re-enactments and Shakespeare productions to torch-light tours and childrens' activities - there's something to interest all ages and tastes.

Fun-filled, informative, tours and activities can be arranged for groups of all kinds, ranging from school tours related to the curriculum, to children's parties with a difference. Special tours and workshops can also be arranged for adult groups.
