Alton Towers was once a stately home near Uttoxeter, but now it’s been transformed into one of the world’s most atmospheric theme parks. If you and your family haven’t been yet, then you must go. Not only can you go on Hex – a ride that takes place within the historic mansion itself – but you can also traverse the various zones of the park via a series of suspended cable cars. Notable rides include Oblivion – the UK’s first vertical drop roller coaster – Nemesis, Air and Rita.
The Roaches Peak District
If you want to take your family on an outdoor adventure, then the Peak District provides the perfect natural setting. The southwest portion of Britain’s first national park extends into northern Staffordshire and plays host to some beautiful rolling countryside. Bridleways criss-cross the landscape, making it an ideal location to go hiking or camping with the whole family. There are a number of friendly campsites in the area as well as plenty of pubs for refreshments after long walks and activities.
The Peak Wildlife Park
The Peak Wildlife Park is the ideal destination for families of animal lovers. The venue, which is both indoor and outdoor, plays host to penguins, lemurs, wallabies and many more critters from around the world. What’s interesting about the park is that both children and adults can get up close and personal with the animals, touch them, and feed them during certain parts of the day. This is a wildlife park where you’ll leave, feeling that you really know the animals a little better. Don’t forget; there’s free parking and a picnic area if you want to take a packed lunch.
