THINGS TO DO IN SHROPSHIRE
The county of Shropshire is an undiscovered gem and it has something for everyone. Beautiful market towns, classic English villages, historic houses, ancient castles and stunning, unspoilt scenery. Ludlow, described by John Betjeman as “probably the loveliest town in England”, is a mecca for foodies who book into its famous restaurants months ahead. But there’s Bridgnorth too and Much Wenlock – both within 20 miles.
Ironbridge– the cradle of the Industrial Revolution is a big draw boasting 10 museums and the Severn Valley Railway steams its way from Bridgnorth to Kidderminster – a must for rail enthusiasts and for those just want to watch the countryside go by in style.
For those who like the great outdoors, South Shropshire is the ideal place for walking, cycling and riding. From The Old Rectory B&B you are perfectly located to step out along the literally hundreds of miles of footpaths and bridleways which criss-cross the county. Down leafy lanes, through wooded valleys and up onto the spectacular heights of the Shropshire Hills. The B&B has maps and route cards to help you plan your days and we can provide picnics with just a little bit of notice.
