The Stafford Town Trail features two Norman churches, each with later influences and additions, a number of Tudor and Stuart half-timbered buildings, along with handsome Queen Anne and Georgian town houses. The public buildings include the Classical Shire Hall, the French Gothic Borough Hall, and the early Edwardian Baroque County Buildings. The Stafford Town Trail should take you no longer than an hour, although you may wish to explore the additional sites [A – F]. Much of the route is pedestrianised, with good wheel-chair access.
