Shropshire

Looking for things to do in Shropshire? With UNESCO World Heritage Sites, areas of outstanding natural beauty, and the best preserved Steam Train network in England, Shropshire has it all. Ironbridge Gorge was awarded World Heritage status for its role as the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, it also boasts the world’s oldest working cast iron bridge, as its name might suggest. You can also enjoy the legacy of industry by driving your own steam train, or dine in style on the Severn Railway as you enjoy the sights of V-shaped valleys in the Shropshire countryside.
