Telford

Tell the Tale of Telford Town

Telford, named after Thomas Telford the renowned civil engineer, Telford's gleaming buildings and hi tech businesses mark it out as a town for the future. One of the UK's fastest growing and most successful new towns - it contrasts with its historic neighbour Ironbridge the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution.

At Telford’s heart, surrounded by tall glossy buildings, is the biggest and best shopping centre in all of Shopaholic Shropshire. Open seven days a week, with parking for over 4000 cars all geared up for a family day out.

Telford is geared for children - Why not take the children to explore the award winning 450-acre Telford Town Park and watch nursery rhymes and fairytale stories come alive in Wonderland? Older children may prefer scaling the ariel walkways, rope ladders and large slides. 

There's Telford Ski Centre and nearby is Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom - sheep steeplechase, a maze and tractor grand prix. The Telford Steam Railway has steam and diesel rides and a model railway.

We have a super Ice Rink too and 2 cinemas including IMAX at Cineworld all walking distance from Telford Town Centre Shopping Mall. Cafes, restaurants and hotels allow you a chance to take the weight off your feet.

And there, in the middle, leaning on his very name is Thomas Telford himself. You have to be a bit special to get an entire town named after you. The poet Southey called Telford “the colossus of roads” and his aquaducts “streams in the sky”. And of the man himself, “more heartily to be liked, more worthy to be esteemed and admired”.

The Telford International Centre is the 6th largest exhibition centre in the UK and the nearby Racquet Centre hosts many prestigious sporting events.

Telford it would seem has been appropriately named.
