Hotels in Burton
The busy market town of Burton lies next to the River Trent and at one time was one of the most important centres for brewing in the UK. Today the town attracts large numbers of visitors each year, keen to find out more about the town's fascinating industrial heritage, enjoy the excellent shopping opportunities available and make the most of the surrounding countryside.
If you're staying in one of the central Burton hotels then be sure to find time to visit some of the town's excellent museums. By the second half of the 19th century there were more than 30 brewing firms established in the local area and a quarter of all the beer consumed in Britain came from Burton. Discover the whole story at The National Brewery Centre.
You can find out how steam engines helped shape engineering during the Victorian era with a visit to Claymills Victorian Pumping Station, one of Britain's largest restored Victorian steam pumping stations.
The National Memorial Arboretum is about a 15-minute drive to the south-west of the town. Set in 150 acres of maturing woodland, it stands as a living centre of remembrance, dedicated to individuals who have served their country, both military and civilian.
Also to the west of Burton is the National Forest Adventure Farm. There's plenty of indoor and outdoor fun to be had here, including lamb feeding, petting and pony grooming. Youngsters can spend time on the mini assault course, testing their off-road skills on mini quad bikes and having fun in the centre's play barn.
You'll find a great range of shops in the centre of Burton, from independent businesses to national chain stores. A significant part of the town centre is pedestrianised and there are numerous indoor retail spaces in the local area. These include Burton Place, Coopers Square, the Octagon Shopping Centre and Middleway Retail Park on the outskirts of the town.
