Shobnall Marina from the airWith a population of some 44,000, Burton upon Trent lies on the West bank of the River Trent, close to the National Forest.
Its modern town centre is extensive and contains all you could want in terms of shopping, eating out and entertainment. From chain stores to a multiplex cinema, all of these excellent facilities are within a 10-minute walk of Shobnall Marina.
As you would expect of Britain's "Brewing Capital", the attractions include a host of real ale pubs, together with two huge brewery visitor centres.
Bass Brewery  logoIn terms of natural attractions, the town's Trent Washlands is a vast run of fields and woods bordering the river itself; replete with waterfowl and wildlife and cross-crossed by historic bridges.
A short drive away will, take you to the National Memorial Arboretum – the UK's centre of remembrance for our war dead.
There is plenty of history on hand – for example, the Victorian Claymills Pumping station – while on the other hand, Britain's brand-new England Football Centre of Excellence (which boasts a Hilton Spa gym for visitors) is but five minutes down the road.
Below are links to just a very few of the wonderful attractions within a 10-minute car drive of Shobnall Marina – as you can see, we really do have lots to offer!
