Feel the Crunch Beneath Your Feet
Feel that fresh autumnal air warm your cheeks by getting out and about for some fabulous walks/runs and cycles and a bit of conker picking!
Check out our Nature Reserves and Country Parks for some active and scenic inspiration.
Don’t miss the Wigginton Park Tree Trail and a great range of self-led walks – ideal for a lovely little family adventure.
For those avid cyclists amongst us, here is a quick route to some of the great biking trails we have on our doorstep. Tamworth-Borough-Issue-5.pdf (staffordshire.gov.uk).
We just kindly ask that you respect the local wildlife, nature and those visiting the spots after you, to ensure all litter is cleared away safely and tidily. Thank you.
Castle Grounds and Playpark
You may have seen that the inclusive Castle Grounds playpark has been up for an award?
We are super proud of this amazing park and it is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and help your little ones to burn off some steam.
Within the Castle Grounds also lies the Planet Walk – another fun way to get out and about educationally.

Make a Movie of It
Autumn brings that snuggly cosy feeling, and what better way to enjoy the longer evenings and cooler weather than to head and watch a great film, surrounded by tasty treats?
Tamworth Assembly Rooms has a fantastic line-up of Monday Night Movies, Silver Screen Showings and family friend movie’s throughout autumn.
Their Silver Screen Showings are a great way to meet like-minded others, over a FREE biscuit and hot drink.
All tickets are £4, which for the epic surround sound and state of the art screen, is a real bargain! Check out All Films here.
Tamworth Assembly Rooms has a brilliant line-up of tribute bands, shows for children and everything in between.
Their epic line-up isn’t season dependant – there is something amazing on all year round for every taste and budget.
We strongly recommend taking a look at ‘What’s On’ so you can see for yourself. Tamworth Assembly Rooms
For a great and affordable family day out, why not come and immerse yourself in ihistory? With the new Historic Augmented Reality Trails, a Battle and Tribute Exhibition featuring items from the Staffordshire Hoard, and many periodic rooms for you to travel back in time and experience life during that era, we guarantee there is something for everyone to enjoy. Book your visit here!
Tingle Those Taste Buds
It’s pumpkin spice season and we couldn’t be happier! Think pumpkin spiced lattes, pumpkin soups and of course, HALLOWEEN themed treats and bakes. As we approach November, nothing (in our opinion at least) beats a buttery jacket spud covered in your favourite toppings. We will also be heading into hot dog territory – a classic bonfire staple.
To get your seasonal foodie fix this autumn, check out our Food and Drinks Trails app.
