"The complete working historic estate," Shugborough touts a functioning watermill, kitchens, tearoom, dairy, and farm animals. Inside the estate's house are renovated servant's quarters and the Staffordshire County Museum, displaying historical artifacts from the area, including the Shugborough inscription, one of the world's top cipher texts that has yet to be cracked. Try a beer from the on-site brewery: the only brewery in England that exclusively brews with log-fire heated stills. Our Stafford itinerary planner makes visiting Shugborough and other Stafford attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
