Shropshire adventures: get your gear on

From the hills and valleys of south Shropshire to the meres and mosses of the north, Shropshire offers infinite adventures. Walk the sweeping moorland of the Long Mynd, or the wooded escarpment of Wenlock Edge. Take a hike up Shropshire’s beloved ‘little mountain’, The Wrekin, from which comes a local toast: ‘To friends all around the Wrekin’. Shropshire has miles of footpaths for casual ambles and lengthy rambles. Long-distance adventures include the Shropshire Way and Offa’s Dyke Path. The latter is named after a King of Mercia thought to have built a mighty earthwork to protect his kingdom from the Welsh. Walking isn’t the only way to see Shropshire. We have miles of cycle paths, including along old railway lines, and adrenaline-inspiring downhill courses. Shropshire bridleways for horseriding include the Jack Mytton Way and Humphrey Kynaston Way, named after two notorious Shropshire horsemen. Shropshire is far from the sea, but our county offers plenty of adventures on water. For an authentically Shropshire/Welsh adventure, try your skills in a coracle – a small, lightweight circular boat that sits on top of the water. And those are just the beginning when it comes to adventure travel in Shropshire. You could also try indoor or outdoor climbing, high ropes courses, paragliding, orienteering, bushcraft … have you packed your sense of adventure?

Did you know Shrewsbury Castle's foundations were laid in 1083 by the 1st Earl of Shrewsbury, Roger de Montgomery? 
Montgomery, a cousin of William the Conqueror, earned this castle and more as a thank-you for his aid during the Norman conquest.

From royal stronghold to a 16th-century transformation, Shrewsbury Castle has quite the story. Now, it stands majestically, housing the Shropshire Regimental Museum. 👑🏰 Ready to step into the pages of history?
