An abundance of activities

Whether it be something historical, thrill seeking or to simply while away the time, Shropshire has an abundance of activities on hand. Below are just a few ideas for you to try. 

The Corvedale Three Castle Walk

The Corvedale Three Castle Walk takes in the beautiful Shropshire countryside in and around the Corvedale valley. The three castles are Broncroft Castle, Corfham Castle and Corfton Castle.

This walk also takes you straight past the Tally Ho, so a perfect place to start or finish and take in a spot of lunch too. Around 11 miles long the whole walk takes between 4-6 hours.

Ludlow

Visit the historic town of Ludlow, with Ludlow Castle taking centre stage in the heart of the town. Surrounded by Ludlow Market the medieval castle is a great day out for all of the family and being the host of the uk’s first ever food festival it is a must for foodies, with endless producers and suppliers to enjoy.

On the outskirts you can find Ludlow Racecourse, where you can hire your own private box to watch the proceedings or watch from track side for a experience not to be missed.

Bridgnorth

The town of two halves Bridgnorth is split between high town and low town. The high town hosting the Town hall in the centre of the high street and The Severn Valley Railway which can take passengers all the way to Kidderminster under the power of steam.

Whilst the River Severn meanders through Low Town adjoined by a funicular railway. With a vintage cinema and various sporting facilities on and off the river, there is much to enjoy in this stunning Shropshire town.

Craven Arms

Meet the Mammoth, enjoy the exhibitions or the 30 acre meadow, all to be found at Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre along the A49 at Craven Arms.

With various activity days throughout the year there is always something to interest even the smallest guests. Built in 1889 Stokesay Court near Craven Arms was more recently the film location for the critically acclaimed ‘Atonement’.

You can now visit the house and surrounding grounds that have been beautifully restored by the current owner Caroline Magnus.
