Shugborough Estate

Home to the Anson family since 1624, it was once described as, ‘a perfect paradise’. Visit this important piece of Staffordshire’s heritage for a full day of discoveries.
 
The stories of Shugborough are entangled with the exploits and interests of two brothers, Thomas and George Anson. Their fortunes and their social position shaped Shugborough; understanding the origins of their power helps us to interpret the ideas and materials which flooded into Britain throughout the 18th century, furnishing homes, forging fashions and changing culture.
 
You can explore sweeping parkland, ancient woodland and a landscape peppered with monuments. See seasonal blooms in the formal gardens, or produce in the walled garden. Say hello to the animals, such as Longhorn cows and Southdown sheep that roam around the fields. In the Georgian mansion, unearth unusual treasures and experience life ‘below stairs’ in the servant’s quarters.
 
Run little legs round the play area and see if you’re brave enough to try the zipwire. Then, round off your day with a treat from the tea rooms or café and take something with you to remember your day, or maybe just a tasty ice cream, from one of the shops.
 
Shugborough Estate is open every day except Christmas Day. Please check our website for opening times. www.nationaltrust.org.uk/shugborough
