Tutbury Town Information




Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Staffordshire...


















Although Tutbury is a delightful old town on the banks of the River Dove, visitors will also want to see the romantic remains of its once-mighty hilltop castle. Dating to the 12th century, the building has three towers, one of which was twice used as a jail for the recalcitrant Mary Queen of Scots in 1569 and 1587. The 12th century priory is considered one of Finest Norman churches in Britain.
