The Heart of England/Peak District
Shropshire, maybe one of England's quiet counties but don't be deceived; there's still plenty to see and do. Shropshire has over 90 places to visit - historic houses and castles with beautiful gardens, the famous Ironbridge, museums and family attractions.
There are many traditional market towns including gourmet Ludlow and the county town of Shrewsbury. Shrewsbury almost surrounded by the River Severn and birthplace of Charles Darwin, is a medieval delight of black and white buildings.
The Shropshire landscape reflects the fact that Shropshire is geologically unique and creates the special habitats that ensures that Shropshire wildlife is so diverse. All this adds up to making Shropshire great walking country.
So whether you're out and about on the Shropshire Hills, by the Meres and Mosses or strolling along with the Shropshire Union and Llangollen Canals you can guarantee the Shropshire air will rejuvenate and restore you.
A landscape of green golden valleys rising to dramatic hills and moorlands. A hidden history of Marcher Lords - long since dead, concealed pagan rites and legends, castles and tiny hamlets all waiting to be found. No wonder this is officially an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Within South Shropshire are:- Shropshire's gastronomic capital Ludlow, the Alpine like setting of Church Stretton, Bishops Castle famed for it's microbrewery, Cleobury Mortimer, Craven Arms and Clun, immortalised by A.E.Housman. Each couldn't be more different or distinctive. Real shopping in proper shops, lively street markets, antique markets, specialist food shops, art and craft galleries - all give retail therapy Shropshire style.
Storybook castles at Clun, Ludlow and Stokesay - a 13th Century fortified manor house said to be so beautiful that when attacked no-one could bring themselves to destroy it.
Visit the Historic Farm at Acton Scott with a working millstone, horse ploughing and butter making, take a simulated balloon ride over Shropshire from the Secret Hills Discovery Centre at Craven Arms where you can also meet the Shropshire Mammoth. Or indulge your senses at Burford House Gardens with its national collection of clematis.
