Tamworth is a large market town that borders Warwickshire and takes its name from the River Tame; it’s the second largest settlement in Staffordshire after Stoke-on-Trent. Home of the historic Tamworth Castle and Moat House, the town was the ancient capital of the Anglo-Saxon Kingdom of Mercia.
The town's main industries include logistics, engineering, clothing, brick, tile and paper manufacture. Until 2001 it was also home to the Reliant car company, which produced the famous three-wheeled Robin model and the Scimitar sports car for several decades. Also home to the adored ‘Snowdome’, the UK's first full-sized real-snow indoor ski slope, it’s located only a short distance away from the equally loved Drayton Manor Theme Park.
