The Heart of England/Peak District
Shropshire and the Welsh Borders are an ideal destination for anyone who is looking for unspoilt countryside and historic towns, and who enjoys good food, exercise and entertainment. There is an abundance of things to see and do. Key attractions include the Severn Valley Railway, the RAF Museum at Cosford, and the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site.
Shrewsbury, the county town for Shropshire set amidst glorious countryside near to the Welsh Borders, is one of England's finest medieval market towns, packed with timber-framed black & white buildings, steep narrow streets, squares and cobbled alleyways. It boasts over 600 listed buildings, including the Castle, now a regimental museum, and the world-famous Shrewsbury Abbey, home of the fictional Brother Cadfael. Shrewsbury's most famous son, Charles Darwin, was born and educated here, and all around one will find reminders of his association with the town.
The River Severn forms a loop around the town centre, offering gentle riverside walks, or you can enjoy a river boat cruise from Victoria Quay. Be astounded by the exceptional number of interesting, independent shops that makes Shrewsbury's shopping so special. Around every corner is a cafe, restaurant or pub; or relax and enjoy one of the hundreds of events or festivals that take place each year, particularly Shrewsbury's Summer Season, catering for every age and interest.
Just 4 miles south of Shrewsbury, in the quiet hamlet of Ryton, is Swallows Loft. Here is the perfect location to explore not only Shropshire's beautiful rolling countryside, but World Heritage Sites, the nine museums and historic sites of Ironbridge Gorge, the awe inspiring aqueducts of Pontcysyllte and Chirk, as well as Church Stretton, The Long Mynd and the Caradoc.
