Our handwritten guide on Backpacking Shropshire
Shropshire is a county in England that is lauded as being one of the quietest. However, with over 90 historic sites to visit and things to do, the region is also one of the most fascinating. The area has many little market towns, including the town of Shrewsbury, the village where Charles Darwin was born. The landscape of the region is unique with diverse wildlife and plenty of walking trails including the Shropshire Hills, the Llangollen Canals and more.
Caravan and campsites abound in the region for travelers who love the outdoors, whilst groups can stay in one of the many great hostels, lodgings, and homestays in the area. Holiday cottages are also to be found, with up to 20 people able to stay in some. Serenity is the key word here, with peace and quiet being focused on in the area.
The market towns in the area hold much of the charm in the county, such as Ludlow, Ellesmere and Bishops Castle. There are many craft shops, farms, inns, teahouses and more. For people looking for a more historic experience, there are many award-winning museums, gardens, heritage sites, farmhouses, abbeys, markets, and raw countryside that is waiting to be explored.
Take a trip to Stokesay Castle, a manor house fortified in the 1200s, or to the site of the world’s first iron bridge which is considered the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. A steam railway called the Severn Valley Railway runs across 16 miles of countryside, allowing for an authentic steam experience.
If you have a taste for legend, you can go down to Wroxeter, also known as Camelot, the capital city where King Arthur held council. Then go down to the RAF Museum in Cosford, dedicated to more modern legends of the country – the Air Force.
There are churches of historic architecture in and around Shropshire, made for peaceful meditation and gasps of awe. For a more natural setting, visit one of the 140 different parks, playgrounds and country parks. There are also gardens and walkways everywhere.
Last, but not least, there is the high quality local cuisine, with fresh fruits, vegetables and baked products everywhere. International cuisine isn’t hard to find either, and there are breweries in the countryside with inns that sell real craft beer and ale.
