Staffordshire is known for its production of pottery, brewing and most of all for being the home of Alton Towers. If you are a fan of old architecture and history then you’ll enjoy a walk in Biddulph Grange Garden which is a restored Victorian garden inspired by other popular gardens around the world. If that is not for you then you can try your hands-on pottery making in any of the major town in Staffordshire. However, the main reason people visit Staffordshire though is for a small town called Alton, Alton is the home of the world-famous Alton Towers. A resort with something for everyone from their mind-blowing rides to their swirling water rides and from their extraordinary golf to the tree top quests the possibilities are endless.
