Places to visit

Acton Scott Farm Museum Today, the Historic Working Farm offers a fascinating insight into rural life at the turn of the 19th century, as farm life unfolds daily and the land around is worked by heavy horses.

lively community feel, Ludlow bustles with events and festivals throughout the
. Perched on a cliff above the River Teme, Ludlow is surrounded by the unspoilt and beautiful hilly countryside of south Shropshire and the Welsh border country, known as the Welsh Marches. Excellent walking and cycling opportunities are right on our doorstep."

Shrewsbury  "Visit Shrewsbury and enjoy its glorious location, within a loop of meandering River Severn, at the heart of Shropshire, a landscape that inspires with its beauty and mystery. Shrewsbury's most famous son, Charles Darwin (born in Shrewsbury) would still recognise the black & white timber buildings of his home town. Renowned to be one of England's most splendid heritage town's with over 600 listed buildings."

Ironbridge  "One of Shropshire's top attractions, the Ironbridge Gorge is known throughout the world as the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution.  But please do not be deceived by our heritage. Nowadays the area is far from industrial. Although the revolution started here, most of the factories are long gone and the natural beauty of the Gorge has been restored."

English Heritage  English Heritage says of Shropshire... " A Roman town house, tranquil abbeys and beautiful countryside: a day out in Shropshire offers plenty for all the family to explore. Choose from one of Shropshire’s many walking routes and trails to discover a moated medieval manor house, impressive Roman ruins and even a famous oak tree!"

Shropshire Tourism  "Shropshire is one of the least crowded and most peaceful areas of England. Now one of the few remaining rural idylls, it has a long history of wild border conflicts which have left a legacy of atmospheric hillforts, earthworks and castles.  As visitors, pilgrims and honoured guests to Shropshire you'll need to know all the best places to visit and interesting things to do while you're here. Indeed as many before you have already discovered, Shropshire's attractions are as diverse as the very county itself."
