Journey through the historic estate of Shugborough and discover a bygone era of our costumed living history characters bringing the past to life.

The story begins in the walled garden were fruit and vegetables are grown for the estate. At the farm the servants' are busy making butter and cheese, the farm hands tend to the animals and the miller grinds the flour. The playarea is also here.

Take a ride on the Land Train to the servants' quarters which are always full of activity with the cooks and kitchen maids preparing food, brewing ale and scrubbing the whites. The elegant mansion completes the story.

Finally, actually taste the history of the estate in the tearoom which serves dishes inspired by historic recipes.

There are children's school holiday activities and a wide variety of events throughout the year see website for details.

Information and prices for events and advanced tickets can be bought online or by telephoning the box office on 0845 459 8900
