Shropshire Attractions

Below are just a few of the attractions in Shropshire, England.


Land of Lost Content (National Museum of British Popular Culture)

The Museum is unlike any other. Quaint and quirky are the usual epithets attributed to it even though there is a serious basis to Stella Mitchell’s collection.


Shrewsbury Abbey

When people think of Shrewsbury Abbey, they think of Brother Cadfael. The Chronicles of Brother Cadfael, written by Ellis Peters are inspired by medieval Shrewsbury.


St. Oswald's, Oswestry

St. Oswald’s in Oswestry is an imposing church in the centre of the town with a big strong tower and three parallel gables. The tower is mainly 13th century.


Battlefield Heritage Site, Shrewsbury

The Battle of Shrewsbury took place on this site in 1403.


White Ladies Priory

The remains of a late 12th-century church of a small priory of Augustinian canonesses, surrounded by picturesque woodland.


St Laurence's Church

A 13th-15thC large parish church (member of the Greater Churches Group) with Medieval misericords, carvings and stained glass. Tower open to the public with fine views.


Park Hall Countryside Experience

National award winning farm park with oodles of animal fun, action and adventure for the kids.


The Judge's Lodging

It’s been called ‘truly inspirational’ by HRH Prince of Wales, ‘ one of the world’s most appealing small museums’ by historian Dr John Davies and won numerous national awards, including ‘Britain’s Best Hidden Gem’. When the BBC brought Historic Royal Palaces Curator and historian, Lucy Worsley to film, she exclaimed ‘WHAT a stunning place!’ You really do need to see for yourself what all the fuss is over this exceptional attraction in the tiny border town of Presteigne. You can explore the ‘upstairs downstairs’ lives of its Victorian inhabitants, from Judge’s to their servants and felonious guests, all by the flicker of gas and oil lighting throughout and a hands-on policy that allows you to immerse yourself into their world.


Mitchell's Fold Stone Circle

Prehistoric Bronze Age stone circle 85 feet in diameter, consisting originally of some 30 stones of which 15 are now visible.


Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre

Get up close and personal to Shropshire’s larger than life mammoth and step back into the Iron Age. If you're looking for somewhere to take the kids or grandkids during the summer holidays we have several family events to keep children and adults amused and entertained.
