We go all the time and it is beautiful. It is dog friendly and has a great cafe. The house is spectacular and the grounds are perfect. The river is great at summer for the whole family.

The map room and kitchen were the most interesting parts of Shugborough estate. The restoration of the estate itself is a work in process, I'm sure it will offer more upon completion. The grounds have lots of walking trails but the day we visited was...More
