The market town of Tamworth lies just a few miles north-east of Birmingham. Tamworth can claim a rich history above and beyond many other historic market towns in the UK. It was once the seat of power for the Anglo-Saxon Kingdom of Mercia in the 7th century.

Tamworth Station was first opened in 1839 and originally served as a hub for travel between Derby and London. 1847 saw another line built at a right angle to the first and passed underneath the original line. In time, these became known as the “Low Level” and “High Level” lines. Sited at the crossing of two major lines meant Tamworth became a valuable stop for industries—specifically the Royal Mail. At its height in the 1950s almost 2,000 bags of mail were transferred here every day.

Today, Tamworth Station remains an important travel hub and serves many popular routes including Birmingham to TamworthNottingham to Tamworth and Sheffield to Tamworth.

Things to do in Tamworth

With nearly two thousand years of history behind it, there is plenty to see and do in Tamworth. The town’s heritage extends back as far as Roman times, with evidence of Roman activity found near present-day Bolebridge Street. The Anglo-Saxons dominated the next few hundred years after the Romans. The town then became an important part of the Mercian Kingdom around the 7th century and the closest thing to a capital by the early 9th century. Tamworth Castle was built in the latter half of the 11th century and is a popular tourist attraction today. Why not plan a visit to the castle and its gardens while you are in town?

The town continued to grow during the reign of Elizabeth I. Developments during the industrial revolution eventually introduced the Peel family to the town, whose descendent, Sir Robert Peel, would become Prime Minister of Britain. You can learn more about the Peel legacy at The Peel Society Museum at Middleton Hall.

Don’t worry that the town hasn’t caught up to the present day. More modern attractions include the Twycross Zoo, paintballing and go-karting. The Jump Extreme Trampoline Centre is only minutes away from the centre of town. There are plenty of ways to keep the kids entertained in Tamworth.
Were you looking for the perfect combination of British history, children’s entertainment and railways? Thomas Land is only three miles away from the centre of Tamworth and easily accessible by public transport from Tamworth Station.

If you want to do some shopping while you’re in Tamworth there’s a retail park on the edge of town, and a variety of independent shops near the town centre.

After a busy day exploring Tamworth, you can recharge at one of the many restaurants in the town. From popular chains to locally owned independent restaurants, you will have no trouble finding something to tempt your taste buds.

We’ve only scratched the surface of things to do, so why not check out the official Visit Tamworth site for more ideas and book your ticket with CrossCountry today.
