Visit North Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent


North Staffordshire stretches from the county town of Stafford to the borders of Cheshire and Derbyshire. It includes the Staffordshire Moorlands and the Staffordshire part of The Peak District National Park offering outdoor activities, attractions, gardens, heritage and the famous Potteries of Stoke on Trent


Stafford, at the Southern end of the area, has its Norman Castle, Ancient High House and Shugborough Estate as its main attractions but there is much more, cycle routes, gentle walks, nature reserves and family farm attractions

At the centre of the area is Stoke on Trent, a city transformed from the smoke and grime of the coal fired pottery works that made the city the World Capital of Ceramics, it is now one of the Greenest Cities in England, not only boasting over 100 green spaces but in the forefront of Green Energy with the development of Geothermal Energy for District Heating. It is proud of its Pottery History with names such as Wedgwood, Spode, Royal Doulton, Masons, Tams, Aynsley today the pottery tradition continues with production by names such as Wade, Steelite, Portmerrion and Emma Bridgewater.


The area has other attractions such as Alton Towers, Trentham Gardens & Water World, leisure time on the canals, history and heritage and being such a romantic area we also have a number of wonderful wedding and civil ceremony venues

The Moorlands and Peak District are great Walking Country, with Leek (known as Queen of the Moorlands) the gateway to the hills, the walking, and some of the county’s best climbing and Cheadle home to Pugi's Gem and near to Alton Towers and the Foxfield Heritage Railway


The area is blessed with a wide range of wildlife, excellent Nature Reserves and outstanding Country Parks


There is a lot more to North Staffordshire than just its famous and very tasty North Staffordshire Oatcakes (a must for all visitors - but be warned once eaten you will be hooked), a local delicacy that expats across the world can't live without

If you love good food you will not be disappointed – we have listed a selection of places to eat under the Town pages but you can also use these links to Places to Eat in the Stafford, Stone, Stoke and Newcastle, Cheadle and Leek and Moorlands areas
