I stumbled upon this attraction totally by accident when deciding whether or not to include Staffordshire within this book. Upon arriving at Amerton, the car park was really busy, which is always a good sign. One of the main things that caught my eye, was just how friendly the staff were, and just how helpful they all seemed to be. At that stage, no one at Amerton knew who I was, so I knew it wasn't an act, and that they genuinely have got a great set of staff. Upon walking around this attraction, I could see that Paul the owner has tried his best to make sure the visitor experience here at Amerton is one that makes you want to return time and time again. There are far too many attractions within Amerton to talk about, but with a very informative website, all the information you need is there.
