About Shropshire

Shropshire is a county situated in the West Midland parts of England and borders Wales. The county town of Shrewsbury, birthplace of Charles Darwin, is a stunning historic town with well over 600 listed buildings to admire and explore. Some of the local attractions include Shrewsbury Abbey, this ancient and yet magnificent Abbey is ranked second only to Canterbury as a favourite destination for pilgrims, Shrewsbury Castle, with its fascinating Regimental Museum and delightful gardens and Rowley's House Museum, which is housed within a timber-framed warehouse and has an adjoining 17th century brick mansion. Other main towns within the county are Ludlow, Oswestry and Telford all of which hold their own individual historical treasures well known to Shropshire.
