Shropshire lies on the border of England and Wales, set on a backcloth of patchwork fields, wooded valleys, picturesque rivers and rolling hills leading into the Welsh mountains.

First time visitors are always amazed at just how much there is to see and do in the county! Key attractions include the Severn Valley Railway, the RAF Museum, at Cosford and the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site. Visit the remains of Roman Cities, Medieval Castles, Ancient Churches and much more.
