There are an excellent range of amenities within the village such as the cricket, bowls and football clubs, The Crown public house and the Village Hall. Also located in the village is the highly regarded Howard Primary School. To the rear of St Peters church are the Elford Hall Gardens, a community funded project which includes a sensory garden and mature grounds, centred around the two and a half acre walled garden where vegetable plots are maintained by the village residents.
The village is mid way between Tamworth, with its range of shops and amenities such as Ventura Retail Park and the Snow Dome Leisure Centre, and the Cathedral City of Lichfield, with its regular rail and bus links to surrounding areas. Elford is just over 20 miles from Birmingham and London can be reached from the Tamworth train station in 65 minutes.
