Shropshire is England’s largest inland county and one of the most beautiful and unspoilt parts of Britain you could imagine.
It has many traditional market towns including the county town of Shrewsbury, almost surrounded by the River Severn and Ludlow, the gastronomic centre.
There is so much to do – an unlimited amount of attractions and places to visit including historic castles, spectacular gardens, National Trust & English Heritage properties, the famous Ironbridge. Plus a fantastic range of events ranging from music, theatre, country sports and air shows.
Shropshire is geologically unique with rolling hills, glacial meres and miles of canal waterways, which in turn has created the special habitats for the diverse variety of Shropshire wildlife. Shropshire is a great place for place for walking!
The Ironbridge Gorge
Though renown as the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, the main industrial elements have long-gone and the River Severn now flows through a beautiful wooded valley in the heart of rural Shropshire. The gorge is particularly scenic.
The River Severn, with riverside walks, almost circles the town. Home of the world famous Shrewsbury Flower Show, the town has excellent shopping facilities, museums and a castle.
Ludlow is one of the finest historic market towns in England with a wealth of beautiful period buildings, lanes and back streets packed with antique, book and craft shops and a superb reputation for good food!
Every summer a world-renown arts festival is held in the dramatic surroundings and setting of the medieval Ludlow Castle.
