Short Breaks in Shrewsbury
Shropshire, also known as Salop, is a county of the West Midlands of England. It is predominantly a rural county from the agricultural expanses of the North Shropshire Plain to the Shropshire Hills and valleys in the south. The River Severn also flows through Shropshire. The county town is Shrewsbury and other towns in the county include Telford, Oswestry, Ludlow, and Market Drayton.
As well as taking in the beautiful scenery of the area, places to visit include the picturesque town of Much Wenlock and its connections with the modern Olympic Games, the Ironbridge Gorge (a UNESCO World heritage site) and historic Ludlow Castle. You could take a trip on the Shropshire Union Canal or, in the summertime, a short ride on the Telford Steam Railway.
