A walk at Trentham Gardens is your perfect day out in the West Midlands this winter

Contrasting with the light and excitement of Christmas, January and February can be dark, quiet, and cold. As a result, it’s easy to feel a little gloomy and lacking in motivation this time of year.

At the Trentham Estate, we believe that planning a special day out this winter with your family or friends will provide the pick-me-up that you need - it’s time to choose somewhere beautiful, and head outside in the winter sun.

In addition to a boost in your mood, a winter walk will provide other benefits such as increased vitamin D production and increased muscle strength and endurance - what are you waiting for? Let’s plan your fabulous day out right now...

A winter’s day out in the Midlands to remember

The Trentham Estate is based in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, and is home to Trentham Gardens. In the throes of winter, the views across Trentham are simply stunning. The historical gardens are some of the finest in Britain and look extra special when touched with frost or a peppering of snow. In addition to enjoying the amazing Staffordshire scenery, you’ll discover hidden art, an enchanting fairy trail and the tranquillity of the Italian gardens. The main walk around the lake is circular too, making it easy to return to the beginning of the trail and revisit your favourite spots for a hot coffee and a cake.

Once you’ve explored the gardens, there’s plenty more to see and do at The Trentham Estate including a shopping village consisting of 77 timber lodges (if winter sales are your thing), an enormous garden centre, and plenty of cosy cafes and restaurants.
