Travellers and activities
Hikers visiting Telford can gaze longingly at the Wrekin, which lies to the west of the city, no more than five miles away. Once topped with an Iron Age fort, the Wrekin is a famous landmark on Shropshire's western boundary and can be seen far and wide, from Manchester's Beetham Tower to Cleeve Hill in Gloucestershire. Although the path is steep in places, you don't have to be a mountaineer to conquer this 407-metre peak, and the trail is easy to reach from the M54 motorway. The Wrekin has a complex geology, and is composed of Precambrian volcanic rock much older than Mount Everest. At the top, the view is simply extraordinary: When the weather is clear it can be seen in 17 counties.Shropshire for garden lovers

Situated at a point on the River Severn, Shrewsbury was the birthplace of naturalist Charles Darwin. There are references to Darwin throughout the city, which is also rich in endearing Georgian and Tudor buildings.
Top 7 travel tips in Shropshire
This glorious 29-acre park sits at the west end of Shrewsbury Bend on the River Severn, just a short walk from the centre of town. For a moment of rest you can stroll along its avenues or have a picnic in the Severn. The quarry was landscaped in 1719 and is centred on the Dingle, which was a stone quarry between the 14th and 16th centuries. This sunken ornamental garden was first planted in the 1870s, and the statue among the flower beds depicts Sabrina, a mythological nymph who drowned in the Severn. The summer calendar at the Quarry is dotted with events like the Shrewsbury Flower Show in mid-August and the Shrewsbury Regatta in May.2. Visit the Historic Shrewsbury Castle
Shrewsbury Castle, which protects the head of the Shrewsbury River Peninsula, was built during the Norman Conquest by Roger de Montgomery in 1070. The red sandstone fortress here is now from the reign of Edward I in the 13th century during his Conquest of Welsh. After a fallow period following the English Civil War in the 17th century, the monument was restored in the 1790s by the celebrated civil engineer and architect Thomas Telford. The castle now houses the Shropshire Regiment Museum, which has a display of paintings, uniforms, weapons and clothing. Laura's Tower, Thomas Telford's gothic revival, is situated on the exact spot of the original Norman mass, and its terrace has a panoramic view of the city and countryside scenery.3. Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery
This historic attraction, established in 1835, has recently been moved to the Music Hall, a large Victorian building in the centre of Shrewsbury. For almost 200 years the museum has assembled a collection of 300,000 objects, with more being added each year. A recent acquisition is the Shrewsbury Hoard, from a stock of 9,315 Roman-era bronze coins discovered by a metal detector in 2009. This is a must-see in a very strong archaeology department that also has an Age of Ancient treasure. Bronze and an inscription in the Hadrian and Roman Mirrors forum of the nearby Roman city of Wroxeter. There is also a rich variety of Caughley pottery, porcelain produced at the Caughley factory in China in the 18th century. The "Max Mouse" route through the museum will also help keep kids on board.4. The oldest neighbourhood in the city, surrounded by the Severn, is an absolute delight!
Shrewsbury has 660 listed buildings, a large proportion of which are black and white wooden houses, erected when the wool trade was flourishing in Tudor times. Also from that era are the “Shrewsbury’s Shuts”, cosy corridors with evocative names like “Gullet Passage”, “Grope Lane” and “Peacock Passage”. You'll spend most of the tour on foot with your head back, inspecting the carved and patterned woods, reliefs, and historic flowers. In the Plaza, the Old Market Hall dates from the 16th century and houses an independent cinema and cafe.5. Go to Ironbridge and discover all its peculiarities
This town gets its name from the original "Iron Bridge", a 30-metre cast iron structure that spans the River Severn and breaks the mould when it was completed in 1779. The wider area of Ironbridge Gorge is often labelled the "Place of Birth of the Industrial Revolution ", and it is a dreamland for scientists, historians, or anyone fascinated by technological advances made in the 18th and 19th centuries. And you can really satisfy that interest because there are 35 historical sites and ten museums to discover. The good news is that everyone deals with a different trade or aspect of engineering, so there is an iron museum, one dedicated to China and another, Broseley Pipeworks, where almost all UK tobacco pipes were made at the Victorian age.6. Oswestry, in this old border town, several places and streets have names in Welsh.
This is the legacy of the Middle Ages when Oswestry was the subject of a fight between the English and the Welsh. And as you move west, the landscape becomes increasingly rugged as you approach the Welsh mountains. Closer to home, you can investigate Oswestry's ancient roots at Iron Age Hill Fort, which is 3,000 years old and intact like any other in England. The playful and imaginative British Ironworks Centre combines an old-school forge with quirky sculptures, like a gorilla made from 40,000 spoons.7. Telford, the largest city in the county is a new and fast growing city known for its high-tech industry.
Telford has a different quality, as a place of business, conventions at the International Centre and some major purchases. In fact, the core of the city is a gigantic shopping mall, by far the largest in the county. The thriving population has a good selection of days off, like the highly rated Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom, while the 400-metre Wrekin Hill is a breeze if you want an energizing landscape. In the remains of a Bronze Age fort, it can be seen as far south as Gloucestershire and as far north as Manchester's Beetham Tower.
