Remote and rural, breaks to Shropshire offer a chance to escape from the everyday and explore a quiet yet intriguing corner of England. History buffs can discover the region’s rich heritage from the Roman city of Wroexeter, King Arthur’s Camelot, to Shropshire’s integral part in the Industrial Revolution at the Ironbridge Gorge Museums. Families and groups of friends will love taking to the water on a canal holiday, gently cruising a network of waterways as the world quietly floats past. Alternatively see the region on the best preserved steam train network in England. For something special you can dine aboard the Severn Railway, soaking in the stunning scenery of forests and valleys as you sip and eat. Breaks to Shropshire offer peace and serenity amid such interesting and historic sites.
