    We take our 2 year old here and he really enjoys himself. It's a lovely little farm and you can get food to feed the animals. It's a really decent price getting in and the tea room is lovely. All the employees are very friendly

    My first visit today to Claymills but certainly not the last. What a great friendly crowd knowledgeable polite helpful and the work they have done and continue to do is simply amazing. All the machinery in steam in all its glory. There was even a bit of a classic car show and BSA Motorcycle on display. Well done to all concerned and keep up the good work. Thank you all for a lovely day.

    David is very friendly and down to earth and shares his extensive knowledge with humour and without our feeling that we were in a classroom. During the experience we had several opportunities to have barn owl and Harris hawk fly to glove, which is a great experience for anybody who loves and admires birds of prey and the ancient art of falconry. Thoroughly recommended.

    A lovely gallery and very helpful staff. Ordered a limited print and they secured one for me and were most helpful.

    Lovely place great for walks. Just spoilt by no dog poo bins or rubbish bins.
    Wouldn't recommend for dog walkers because of this. It's such a shame because people like myself couldn't sit outside for a drink because of carrying poo bags. So disappointed.

    Lovely place to visit although the toilets are quite horrible😔. The exit back on to the a38 isnt much fun either but its a lovely spot for a walk.

    Stapenhill Gardens is a very pleasant public park, being a mixture of formal gardens, open grassland and woodland plus a popular play area containing a large white swan to attract the small people, as it was on our visit.
    Staying south of town in the laughing called Premier Inn Central we took a very pleasant Trent River walk starting at the Riverside Pub. From here you can pick up the footpath along the riverbank , along the edge of the greens of Branston Golf and Country Club all the way to Stapenhill Gardens and the Washlands Circular. The golf club don’t make it obvious and ignore the signs to stay to the gravel paths, but stick to the river and the small wooden posts as this is a public right of way and it’s a lovely walk on this section of the Trent. You are on the wrong bank for the gardens but it does mean you get to cross the excellent Ferry Bridge ( a Victorian Iron pedestrian bridge that has now been restored to its former glory and deserves a trip advisor listing on its own ) which will lead you to the gardens.
    After the gardens you can carryon to the Washlands Circular section of the riverbank and from here I can thoroughly recommend the short detour up hill to The Elms pub on the main road, which is a fine example of a Victorian hostelry that retains its original multi roomed layout.

    Recently visited the Pirelli Stadium as an away supporter. The football was mediocre but entry and exit was a breeze and the facilities were good. My other half enjoyed some faggots with mushy peas before kick off.

    It’s a bit hidden away in the Yeoman Business estate to the north of Burton about a 10 minutes walk from the top of the High Street ( the Trip Advisor map point is currently completely wrong but the post code is correct ).
    A lot of microbrewery tap rooms can be a bit sterile and a bit industrial, but not this one. Firstly the building itself is an impressive Victorian brick building and then you enter into the main brewing room which, despite being a working site with all the brewing equipment, is a really comfortable space with a log burning stove and plenty of assorted seating on the main floor. Then to the right is a small and nicely intimate room done in burgundy with a load of Burton-based breweriana, which is easily missed unless you use the toilets.
    The bar is at the far end and there were three of the breweries beers on. Obviously the quality was very good but the two I tried were not memorable in themselves, but the whole ambiance of the place made this a very good visit.
    Worth searching out in my opinion. However it is only open on a Friday evening.

    I met a few friends at Burton Town Brewery on Saturday, strangely it turns out that a mate from school is one of the owners, Hi Ian.

    I had a taster of the beers but my favourite was the Thomcat, great tasting beer and definitely recommended

    I'll definitely be going back.

    St Mary's is the Church of England church for the parish of Stretton, noticed it was open and decided to have a look. From the outside the thing that catches your eye is the massive tower which houses six bells. As soon as you enter the Font is directly in front of you and then you notice the striking blue carpet leading up to the Altar with multi coloured kneeling cushions dotted around the pews.

    Fortunately I had been lured to Burton on Trent for its fine ales and pubs rather than its retail opportunities, but having some time to kill we decided to look around the town centre and was tempted into Burton Place by the inviting front sign. Oh dear. If I say that the most interesting retail outlet in this one is a charity shop then that tells you all you need to know.
    The Coopers Place shopping arcade almost opposite is better but Next and Primark are probably top of the chain shops here. So I think it’s safe to say Burton is not high up there for those seeking retail therapy.

    Visited on a Misty November day, well kitted out for a walk around the crater and down to the Tutbury road.
    Moving experience- of an often forgotten event. We will return.
    Three observations:

    1 Topsoil is clay so proper walking boots necessary- and slippy paths.

    2 East Staffordshire walk details say park at the Cock inn- but their signs say for customers only- we did park there.

    3 Rest of village attractive with great views- area around church is beautiful.
