I went with my family, at first I thought there is no way that I will make that hill. But once I had I was so pleased, the view is wonderful.
Visited here with my children. They loved the visitors centre because they could dress up in all sorts of clothes including chain mail, helmets and shields, they could also do a brass rubbing. We then walked up through a wood to the castle itself which is a ruin. Lovely staff and filled in an afternoon.
The last time I visited Stafford Castle, there was a few inches of snow and the sky was overcast, which, for a keen photographer like me, was sad, but I still managed to take a fair few shots in the atmospheric conditions!

I took the dog for a walk around the castle today and had a great time. Obviously it's a bit steep in places but when you're up there the views are worth it. I can't believe I live half a mile away from the castle and I only visited it for the first time today after 4 years.
There has been a castle in this spot since 1100, originally it was made of timber. A very enjoyable film introduced the castle to us.
