The Historic Town of Shrewsbury

Only 6 miles from Grove Farm House, Shrewsbury is an attraction in itself with many things to do and see. The historic town includes Shrewsbury Castle, the 900 year old Abbey and many other historic buildings and churches. Walk along the River Severn through the Quarry Park and admire the floral displays in the ‘Dingle’. Shopping is a must in the town with many specialist boutiques rather than the usual chain stores and there are many cafes, bars and restaurants to choose from.

 

The Ironbridge Gorge Museums

The world's first iron bridge spans the River Severn in the town of Ironbridge and is the birth place of the industrial revolution, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Ironbridge Gorge Museums are nine award winning museums and sites that tell this momentous story.

The Market Towns of South Shropshire

Ludlow, Much Wenlock and Church Stretton all have their own individuality, and are all great places to while away an afternoon.  With fantastic places to eat and shop they are all well worth a visit, with tea shops, antique centres and in Ludlow even a Michelin starred restaurant!

 

The Severn Valley Railway

The SVR is a full-size standard-gauge railway line running regular steam-hauled passenger trains between Bridgnorth, to Kidderminster in Worcestershire a distance of 16 miles. The journey is full of interest, for the route follows closely the meandering course of the River Severn for most of the way on its journey between Kidderminster and Bridgnorth. One highlight of the trip is the crossing of the River Severn by means of the Victoria Bridge - a massive 200-foot single span, high above the water which features in the film 'The Thirty-nine Steps'.  For further information, see www.svr.co.uk and www.bridgnorthstation.co.uk.
