Around Burton

Burton Upon Trent is the largest town in the National Forest and is internationally known as the capital of British Brewing. Michael Bass, who became Lord Burton in the 19th Centry, gifted the town with many of its fine buildings. The most prominent being the Town Hall, together with St.Margaret’s Church and the beautiful St. Paul’s.

The Coors Visitor Centre (formally the Bass Museum) tells the story of Bass, Brewing and Beer, with frequently changing exhibitions, interactive galleries, and unique collections of horse-drawn and motorised historic vehicles. Also visit the Marston’s Visitor Centre, where you can join a tour of the brewery and see time honoured brewing methods in action.

Burton Upon Trent is a premier shopping centre, boasting three excellent shopping centres, with good mix of specialist shops and leading retailers.

The Victoria Town Hall in all its Gothic splendour, is the ideal venue for concerts, exhibitions and other functions.

The Brewhouse Arts Centre, is a multi-purpose arts building incorporating 230 seat theatre, gallery, studios, media centre, cinema and delightful bar bistro in which to relax.
