Welcome to The Official Tourism Website For Shropshire
Shropshire - where laid back people come to slow down
If you are looking for a short break and a chance to get away from it all, de-stress, clear your head and indulge a little - Shropshire could be just the answer to your prayers. Even those at the more stressful end of the scale will see a difference in themselves after only a short time well spent in this most delightful of England's unspoilt counties.
Tucked away on the English and Welsh border, Shropshire is easy to reach from almost anywhere but, like all the best places, far enough away that it has stayed comparatively unchanged. The map opposite may help you locate us.
A wander through this website will provide some inspiration to help you plan how much - or indeed how little - you may want to do when you are here. Perhaps a stroll by a river taking in some countryside, a visit to one (or two) of our entertaining attractions, sample some of our award-winning hostelries or just amble around the numerous independent shops in one of our pretty market towns (we still have them in Shropshire).
You will also find many friendly and helpful accommodation providers offering comfy beds, warmth, hospitality and the like to the weary, so do give them a call or drop them an email - they would love to hear from you.
