Burton upon Trent,
Tutbury - The Historic village on the banks of the River Dove, is dominated by the remains of the imposing Tutbury Castle, where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned three times.
Today the Castle offers new and exciting attractions, visitors are able to see The Great Hall representing a 1570's State Room. A Tudor garden and herbery have been recreated and you can enjoy Falcons, Peacocks and Birds of Prey displays.
Nestling in the shadow of the castle, the Priory Church of St. Mary the Virgin is a fine example of a Norman Church. The west front with its great door, is set in a series of six receding arches each intricately carved. Built in the late eleventh century by Henry de Ferrers, the church reflects the importance of Tutbury in Norman times.
Tutbury boasts many fine Tudor, Georgian and Regency houses, in its charming wide main street. The 15th century black and white half timbered 'Dog and Partridge' inn is one of the most striking buildings in the village and was once home of the Curzon family of Kedleston Hall in Derbyshire.
The ancient craft of glassmaking still survives at Tutbury, and you can visit local glass works to see craftsmen at work making and decorating glass.
Tutbury has a good range of craft shops, antique, jewellery and clockmakers. The village also has a number of pubs, accommodation and eating places.
