Shopping in Shropshire: treat yourself

Shopping bags and spending money at the ready. Shropshire has treats in store for every type of shopper, from big-name chain fans to gallery and gift shop browsers. Telford Centre is Shropshire’s biggest retail destination. An amazing 25 acres of indoor shopping space houses all the major UK high street stores. With cheap, plentiful parking and well-known restaurants, Telford is a one-stop shopping dream. Indoor leisure activities at Southwater (including bowling, cinema, ice skating and soft play) will keep non-shoppers amused while you browse to your wardrobe’s content. Shropshire is a county where small, independent businesses are treasured. You’re guaranteed to find one-off gifts in our towns’ many markets, giftshops and galleries. And you’ll be supporting local people and artisan skills into the bargain. Some Shropshire shops have been running for many generations, loved for their specialist knowledge and traditional approach. Shropshire’s indie bookshops and delicatessens are among the best in the UK. Try Shrewsbury with its national award-winning markethall and Wyle Cop – a steep curving street believed to have the longest uninterrupted run of independent shops in the country. Or Ludlow with its daily markets of food, crafts and vintage ware. Whatever your interests, you’re guaranteed a grand day’s spending in Shopshire … we mean, Shropshire.

Montgomery, a cousin of William the Conqueror, earned this castle and more as a thank-you for his aid during the Norman conquest.
