Welcome to Whittington Castle near Oswestry in Shropshire England. The strikingly picturesque and romantic ruins are steeped in much history, tales of bitter border warfare, romance and legend.
A small rural community in North Shropshire, England acquired a 99-year lease to manage the Castle that sits in the centre of its village. In 2007 The Trust re-opened the Castle to visitors after a restoration with the assistance of a £950k grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Why not have a cup of tea or a piece of cake in the Castle Tearoom. Freshly prepared sandwiches, warming soups, ice-cream. Morning coffee or Afternoon tea from toasted teacakes to muffins to milkshakes. Great value for money and the ideal stopping off place.
