Choose how to spend your Shropshire stay

An abundant choice of activities in Shropshire means your visit can be as adventurous or as relaxing as you choose. Or a mixture of both, of course. For every visitor, every mood, every type of holiday, Shropshire has myriad activities to make your time here special. Explore Shropshire by leg power. We have seemingly infinite footpaths for walking, cycle paths for pedalling and wonderful bridleways for horseriding. It’s the perfect way to slow down and admire our county’s beauty up close, hedgerow by hedgerow. If you have young children, they may love meeting animals at one of Shropshire’s family-friendly farm parks. Or climbing a hill or exploring castle ruins. Shropshire is liberating and exhilarating for children: help them escape roads and crowds and let them discover true freedom. Shropshire outdoor leisure activities include mountain boarding, clay pigeon shooting, quad trekking, archery, climbing, paintballing and fishing. You can even glide over the Long Mynd in a two-seat glider. If you love to get out on water, try canoeing, rafting or stand-up paddleboarding on the stunning River Severn. For a more sedate experience, take a narrowboat out on our canals in north Shropshire.Shropshire is home to several highly regarded golf courses. One Shropshire golf course, in the Welsh Marches, features a hole where you can stand with one leg in England, the other in Wales. Now you know about activities in Shropshire, the only question is: which one will you do first?
