Welcome to Staffordshire, a landlocked county in the West Midlands of England. The area borders Cheshire to the northwest, Leicestershire and Derbyshire to the east, Warwickshire to the southwest, Worcestershire and West Midlands to the south, and Shropshire to the west.
Its largest settlement is Stoke-on-Trent, with other popular destinations including Lichfield, Stafford, Burton-upon-Trent, Cannock, Newcastle-upon-Lyme, Leek and Tamworth. Whichever one you choose to visit, there is always the option of having an Afternoon Tea in Staffordshire.
The history of Staffordshire dates back to Saxon times when it was divided into five ‘hundreds’ (referring to administrative divisions). These were Cuttlestone, Offlow, Pirehill, Seisdon and Totmonslow.
In its early days, the northern boundaries of the county were seldom settled due to its extensive moorland. Southern Staffordshire, meanwhile, was largely a forest-district. Today, the area contains parts of the National Forest, as well as the world-famous Peak District National Park.
Why not have a nice walk before stopping at an Afternoon Tea Staffordshire venue for lunch?
