Theme Parks · Gardens · Ski Areas
Featuring a landscape of undulating hills and wild moorlands, Staffordshire is known for containing some of the biggest and most important coal mines in the country. Nestled between the sprawling urban centers of Manchester and Birmingham, this region offers visitors a chance to explore surprisingly large green areas, which in the northern part of the county reach all the way to the hills of the renowned Peak District. Staffordshire remains an under-explored part of the country, providing travelers who do linger in the area with an unhurried holiday experience, far from the noise and the bustle of the more tourist-driven spots. The highlight of any vacation in Staffordshire is certainly the city of Lichfield, noted for containing the only medieval English cathedral with three spires.
