It is difficult to know what to include when one is recommending Shropshire to the unacquainted.  As a county of ‘two halves’ characterised by the flat and fertile North and strikingly different rural rugged South, it is a delightful county to explore with an abundance of history and natural beauty.

 The County town of Shrewsbury has the greatest number of Tudor buildings of any town in England and the longest river in England runs through it. 

 Viroconium Cornoviorum (Wroxeter) was one of the largest settlements in Britain during Roman times. 

 The Shropshire Hills is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and includes The Long Mynd a plateau of 516m.

 The area around Coalbrookdale is regarded as one of the birthplaces of the Industrial Revolution and alongside Ironbridge forms part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

 The National Trust has properties including Attingham, Dudmaston and Benthall, all unique and worthy of a visit.
