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.
Shropshire has 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.
Unspoilt, unrushed and tranquil.
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 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.
Where laidback people come to slow down.
Some say this is the quietest part of Shropshire and it's easy to see why - with a landscape of meres and mosses, full of wildlife (bring binoculars) and mile upon mile of languid canals that link Market Drayton and Whitchurch in the east to Oswestry in the west. Weave your way through unspoilt countryside and steer your course towards the World Heritage Site at Pontcysyllte with its breath-taking 125 foot aqueduct.
Shropshire's flirtation with Welshness stems from these parts, where the border country around Oswestry courts North Wales. With five distinctly different market towns and a positive scattering of pretty villages, North Shropshire offers a real sense of warmth and welcome - just as you'd expect.
Here you will find some of the finest gardens England has to offer, the famous sweet pea festival (in Wem) and Britain's first theme park no less! Hawkstone Follies is a fantasyland of cliffs, crags, caves, deep woods and a series of extraordinary monuments built more than 250 years ago; a firm favourite with visitors of all ages and even the occasional film producer too (the BBC's Chronicles of Narnia was filmed here).
Those by contrast that prefer their nature untouched by human hand will marvel at our glacial lakes and wetlands. The Mere at Ellesmere is the largest and most spectacular of the nine glacial lakes. Relax at The Boathouse Visitor Centre and take in the view, or take a stroll into town for a spot of shopping.
North Shropshire is one of the lesser-known regions of our delightful county, so for those in need of some genuine rest and relaxation we heartily recommend you book your visit now.
