Local Attractions

Shropshire – where laid back people come to slow down

If you are looking for a short break and a chance to get away from it all, de-stress, clear your head and indulge a little – Shropshire could be just the answer to your prayers. Even those at the more stressful end of the scale will see a difference in themselves after only a short time well spent in this most delightful of England’s unspoilt counties.

Tucked away on the English and Welsh border, Shropshire is easy to reach from almost anywhere but, like all the best places, far enough away that it has stayed comparatively unchanged.

A wander through this page will provide some inspiration to help you plan how much – or indeed how little – you may want to do when you are here. Perhaps a stroll by a river taking in some countryside, a visit to one or two of our entertaining attractions or just amble around the numerous independent shops in one of our pretty market towns (we still have them in Shropshire).

The Ironbridge Gorge Museums

” There are ten award-winning Museums spread along the valley beside the wild River Severn. See the products that set industry on its path and the machines that made them. Watch and talk to the Museums’ craftsmen and costumed demonstrators. ”

Bridgnorth

” Bridgnorth sits high on a sandstone cliff and its history, well, lets say its had it’s ups and downs and all have left their marks in Bridgnorth’s development.

The town is divided in two - a high town and low town. There are caves, a castle, a cliff railway, a civil war and catastrophes that all had a bearing on the town you see today. ”
