Tamworth Area Guide
Tamworth is an ancient market town, the capital of Anglo Saxon Mercia and home to almost 78,000 people. This jewel of a town has not only a rich past, but also a vibrant present, with a strong sense of community and a thousand things to see and do.
The first properties for sale come onto the market for as little as £75,000 and make for ideal first homes or great investment opportunities. These apartment properties are typically modern, light, and ready to be your next home immediately. It’s a blank canvas and an opportunity to make your own. As prices increase you can find contemporary apartments and homes to each person’s taste, along with stunning properties which are perfect for families of all ages. Classical 3 bedroomed semi-detached homes with large gardens are available for just over £200,000. In these properties you can easily imagine children running around after pets in the garden, and lazy barbecues that effortlessly pass from the afternoon into the evening. At the highest end of the property ladder in the area you can find sprawling, newly built 5 bedroomed properties, and characterful barn conversions with history in every inch of brickwork. As the light floods into these homes and the sunlight warms your skin, you can appreciate all that Tamworth has to offer families and professionals.
In terms of schools, there are plenty of options in and around the area. Parents have the choice between a number of state schools such as The Arthur Terry School or the King Edward the Sixth School.

This gives you the perfect balance lively city and pastoral beauty without ever having to compromise on your property dreams.
Things to Do
Beyond beautiful houses, Tamworth has plenty to see and do. For adrenaline junkies there are two county famous options - the Snowdome and Drayton Manor. If you’ve grown up in Staffordshire, you’ll most likely have been to the Snowdome for at least one tobogganing birthday party, or learned to ice skate in one of its rinks. For over 23 years the Snowdome has been teaching people how to snowboard, ski and ice skate, and it’s still a popular location for anyone looking for a change of scenery.
Drayton Manor is the other local prize for thrill seekers, with a variety of rides and activities that can keep the entire family entertained. Favourites like The Bounty Pirate Ship are part of many families’ memories, and your first ride on The Apocalypse is something you’ll never forget. If you feel like taking things a little slower, even if only to get your heart rate back down, then you can wander through the 15 acre zoo which runs right next to the amusement park. There’s plenty to see and do at Drayton Manor, and should you wish to learn something new, you’re in the right place too. There are educational talks, workshops and events and activities for students of all ages. Whether it’s the mechanics of rollercoasters that sets your mind reeling or the delicate nature of animal’s habitats that makes you feel warm inside, there will be something for you.
