Humphrey Court

Humphrey Court is located in the heart of Stafford. Founded during the Anglo Saxon period, Stafford now offers a modern range of shops and services nestled among the Elizabethan buildings that are so prevalent in the county town. There is a wide range of national and independent shops on the high street, combined with the Guildhall Shopping Centre also in the town centre. These are complemented by the Indoor Market, which hosts markets four days a week and a monthly farmers market, a popular choice with those seeking local produce. Less than a mile from Humphrey Court is Victoria Park. This 13 acre Edwardian park, offers riverside walks and a bowling green, whilst the popular tourist attraction of Shrugborough Hall lies 5 miles from Stafford and perfect for a relaxing day out.
