Wroxeter Roman City
Britain is home to some really amazing Roman artefacts. Just outside of Shrewsbury you can explore Wroxeter, one of the largest cities from the period. There are some great sights, including the remains of a bathhouse as well as a rebuilt townhouse.
Across Shropshire you can find a number of wonderful towns full of history. Ludlow is one of the best and a must visit for anyone with a passion for architecture. There are hundreds of listed buildings, including medieval coaching inns, Tudor houses, and also an 11th century castle.
The Shropshire Hills is one of the most amazing AONBs in the UK. It is over 2,000 acres with a natural landscape full of ancient hills. Long Mynd is one of the best spots in the whole area. A hike to the top will give you some of the best views, so it is unmissable.

Wollerton Old Hall
This 16th century hall is a wonderful sight but the real treasure here is the six formal gardens on the grounds. Each of them has its own character and you can enjoy a beautiful mix of plants, trees, and flowers.
