If you are a keen shopper, you'll be spoilt for choice in Staffordshire.
In Stafford's pedestrianised streets, there are a mixture of high street names as well as the indoor shopping facilities of the Guildhall Shopping Centre.
Some towns, like Tamworth and Burton, have indoor shopping areas packed with household names - others like Newcastle-under-Lyme, Lichfield and Leek, have a blend of old and new and quaint pedestrian areas. Other towns including Cannock and Uttoxeter, to name a couple, all have extensive shopping facilities and in rural areas people are catered for by a wealth of village stores.
So whether you want superstores, traditional markets, unusual gift shops or established high street names, you'll find what you're looking for in Staffordshire.
For an alternative day out, Manchester and Birmingham are less than an hour away.
