"The complete working historic estate," Shugborough touts a functioning watermill, kitchens, tearoom, dairy, and farm animals. Inside the estate's house are renovated servant's quarters and the Staffordshire County Museum, displaying historical artifacts from the area, including the Shugborough inscription, one of the world's top cipher texts that has yet to be cracked.

  • Visited on a wet day but there is transport to the house which is a long walk from the visitor reception, house looks nothing from outside but is worth a visit. Home of the Anson family and Earls of L...  read more »
  • I came away from our most recent visit hoping that the National Trust can improve the way Shugborough is organised. I seem to waste so much time - first because of the poor system of admission, and la...  read more »
  • This is a great place to wile away a few hours. The gardens are lovely, with a nice mix of manicured and natural areas. The house itself was interesting to walk around, as you get to see the formal pa...  read more »
  • Suprisingly a good place to visit. First impressions the layout of the ground's was pleasing to the eye,the interior furniture and fittings was quite good, with lots of history attached to the items with guides at hand to explain to you what you are looking at or what you are interested in . There are picnic areas, for you to eat at, then for those that are inferm there is a mini bus/road train service, that will take you to the hall, it self . Plenty of space for you to park your car with ample spaces, for the disabled . There's a caffay/tea room, the food that is there is not poor, but it's adequate good for a family or a single, person. What do I think as value for money, a bit over priced at £ 15:00 person, and that's with the £3:00 parking ticket taken off as a refund ,for a family coming out for the day, it's going to be expensive ! Would I go there again, yes.
  • Good day out but would be good if you could go in the winter!
  • Excellent grounds and building, well worth a day out.
  • I spent a week there in Year 6 it was AMAZING
  • Another fantastic FREE attraction large grounds. Avoid ticket office ! 😏
