There are several ancient towns and villages in the region, but Ludlow is the jewel in Shropshire’s crown. There are hundreds of buildings from the 18th century, including some beautiful examples of half timber fronts. Then there is the amazing Stokesay Castle and the ruins of Ludlow Castle. Visitors can enjoy a walk around the town among the architecture, visit one of the many local cafes, and even visit the local markets.


This is one of the most picturesque towns bordering England and Wales. It also has a great history, changing hands several times in the Middle Ages as the English and Welsh both sought to claim it. Today it is a great place to visit to enjoy architecture, the nearby Pontcysyllte Aqueduct UNESCO site, heritage steam railways, castles, and independent shops. You can also find a fair few surprises, including food festivals and a hot air balloon carnival.


While most people visit Shropshire to take in the history, there are some spots where you can look to the future. Telford is a great example and has embraced the tech industry. As a result is has a more modern feel. There are lots of great attractions, including the largest shopping centre in the county. This is a great spot for day trips and experience days too.
