The Staffordshire Hoard

The Staffordshire Hoard is the largest hoard of Anglo-Saxon gold and silver metalwork ever found.

They were found in a field, just a few miles away from our castle. Items from The Staffordshire Hoard are available to view here. They form part of our 'Battle & Tribute' exhibition about Anglo-Saxon Tamworth.

The exhibition features 40 pieces from the Staffordshire Hoard and helps visitors explore more about the power struggles of the Anglo-Saxon era, the battles, the blows and the bloodshed. Artefacts are brought to life with stunning replica weapons and hands-on activities. Learn more about our Battle & Tribute exhibition.

There is no additional charge to view this exhibition - normal admission charges apply.

You can pre-book tickets online here
