If you want to learn more about how the house was built, take a stroll to the Castle Room where you will find an interesting display showing materials used for the house and explanations of the methods implemented for construction. Young and old will find this room fascinating.

And if you are interested in the army, you could head to the attic floor which homes the Staffordshire Yeomanry Regiment Museum where there is a range of displays and items relating to the regiment.
