Shropshire attractions: see something new in Shropshire with every visit

Thanks to a vast array of attractions in Shropshire, each visit to our beautiful county can bring a completely different experience. Families with young children may love roaming free in our countryside parks and forests, or through the luxuriant gardens and grounds of Shropshire’s castles and big houses. Perhaps you’d like to explore the country’s first ‘theme park’, Hawkstone Park -an intriguing landscape of caves and follies, beloved by Victorian visitors. Shropshire is home to several fun farm attractions where you can get up close to animals: feed a lamb, walk with a hawk, brush an alpaca or ride a pony. Heritage railway lines are another popular Shropshire attraction. Hop on board a vintage train, listen for the whistle and enjoy the old-fashioned scent of steam as you chug through timeless Shropshire scenery. Visitors young and old will find something to love in our UNESCO World Heritage site of Ironbridge, birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. Take your time exploring ten museum attractions. Many more museums in our Shropshire towns await the curious-minded. Shropshire has attractions for every guest and their every mood. So what would you like to do in Shropshire today?
