Shropshire

If you’re looking to unwind against a natural, tranquil backdrop, then make sure that Shropshire is on your list. Shropshire is the least populated county in England and made up of miles of expansive, rolling countryside. Located in the West Midlands, it’s close enough to major rail networks to make getting to it convenient, but far enough away that you’ll feel completely removed from the stresses and strains of your daily life. The county has a rich past and you’ll find an abundance of fascinating, historical sites to discover.

Shropshire’s Heroic History

A visit to Battlefield 1403 will give you some insight in to Shropshire’s bloody heritage, being the site of the Battle of Shrewsbury. Today, it’s part of the Albrighton Estate and you can spend a day soaking up facts, buying local produce from the farm shop and visiting the Mary Magdalene Church. Buildwas Abbey in Telford is another impressive example of the county’s past. A ragged ruin of a building, it dates back to the 12th Century and is a popular attraction.

Family Attractions

Visitors with young children will find plenty to entertain and engage, such as the Bridgnorth Cliff Railway; a fully operational, vertical rail system that gives you splendid views of the local surroundings. Alternatively, the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre offers to help you explore the county's prehistoric past, complete with interactive displays and workshops.

Nature At Its Best

Thanks to its expansive countryside, Shropshire is brimming with wildlife centres and nature reserves where you can see rare flora and fauna. A trip to Prees Heath Common Reserve will allow you to see the last sanctuary for the Silver-studded Blue butterfly.
