In the last year, more and more people have been exploring nature and the beautiful natural sights across the UK. These attractions are wonderful because they allow people to get some fresh air and socially distance. Shrewsbury is a great destination if you want to enjoy some of these fantastic spots. With Wisteria Cottages you can also choose short term lets in Shrewsbury that will give you the time to see everything.
What are the best natural sights in the area?
In Shrewsbury itself you can enjoy the Quarry. It is a wonderful park with lots of greenery to enjoy. One of the best parts of the park is the Dingle, an ornamental garden that is full of colour when in bloom. During your visit you can also see beautiful sandstone buildings built from stones that came from the quarry itself. In normal times you can enjoy fun events like the Shrewsbury Flower Show and the weekend long Food Festival.
The River Severn is one of the most incredible features of the area. In fact, it is responsible for literally carving out the shape of the town. Nature lovers can enjoy walks along the banks, take to the cycle route, or even enjoy a river cruise when the boats are operating.
On the outskirts of Shrewsbury you will find the beautiful Attingham Park. The site is operated by the National Trust. The estate has acres of country park and even includes a deer park and gardens. There is also a Regency mansion with a stunning interior. Spring is a great time to visit so you can see all of the bluebells blooming.
If you want to enjoy a sprawling, picturesque landscape, the Shropshire Hills is the perfect spot for you. It is an AONB that offers a beautiful living environment and a wealth of history. Visitors can find some wonderful routes for walking and cycling. The Sriperstones are a must see and Caradoc and Long Mynd have some of the best views.
Ironbridge Gorge is also a great site to visit. It is home to the oldest iron bridge in the world. This was built in 1779 and is one of the most amazing landmarks of the Industrial Revolution in Britain. The gorge itself is a stunning sight and the whole area has a historic landscape. That is why it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
