Whether you’re looking to enjoy an action-packed day out or a long, leisurely walk in the country, you’d do well to head to Staffordshire. Alton Towers is where thrill-seekers can indulge their need for speed on rides such as Oblivion and The Smiler, while family-friendly fun can be found at Drayton Manor. Animal lovers, meanwhile, will have a great time walking amongst the 140 Barbary macaques living at Monkey Forest in Trentham.

If you had a more sedate day in mind – perhaps featuring a nice meal out – there are a multitude of fantastic places to eat in the region, and the large number of food producers in the area means you’ll be tucking into only the freshest produce. You might stop by The Birches Head in Stoke-on-Trent for some top pub grub, The Grove for coffee and cake, or Cullens Restaurant in Stone for a slightly more formal affair.

Staffordshire has an enthusiastic foodie community, with some fantastic food and drink events happening throughout the year. Beer aficionados, take note – Staffordshire is known for its many small breweries, so it’s the place to be to sample some proper real ales in the area.

Please note, only festivals from today's date are shown below.

The Stone Food & Drink Festival

If you want to really make the most of this week-long celebration of food, be sure to also look out for separate events like the roving feast and the farmer’s market.
