 4 Incredible Things To Do In Shropshire

From epic hiking routes to local food and luxurious hotel stays, there are plenty of amazing things to do in Shropshire.

But, where is Shropshire? The county is located in central England, between the Welsh Border and Birmingham. The principal towns are Shrewsbury and Telford, which both have train stations too. If you’re travelling by car, you’ll become familiar with the M54, A5 and the A49 which criss-cross through the county.

Without further ado, here are a few ideas on what to do in Shropshire…

Explore The Historic Town Of Shrewsbury

Shrewsbury is a treasure trove of wiggly streets filled with old-world charm, adorned with colourful streams of bunting. As you meander through the streets we’d recommend stopping by Shrewsbury Castle and looking around the gardens.

Go Canoeing In Shrewsbury

One of the things we love most about Shrewsbury is that you’re never far from the River Severn. Once you’ve explored the town on foot we’d recommend seeing the sights from the water too. Hire a Canoe operates in Shrewsbury and Bewdley, allowing guests to paddle along the River Severn at their own pace.

Enjoy A Great Meal In Shrewsbury

One of the perks of the river surrounding the town of Shrewsbury is that you can enjoy a drink or a meal with a spectacular view. The Boathouse is located just across Port Hill Bridge and has a large terrace overlooking the water.

Get To Grips With Ludlow’s Food Scene

Ludlow is the foodie heart of Shropshire. Back in 2000, there were 3 Michelin starred restaurants in this small market town. While it may not have any of the top gourmet accolades today, the excellent reputation remains.
