Mother€™s Day at Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre

Mother’s Day at Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre Spring has sprung! We are starting to see the grass turn greener and the daffodils are popping up all over the Onny Meadows, making Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre the perfect place to bring mum for Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day is this coming Sunday (26th March) so spoil her with a delicious Sunday lunch in our café; Tables will be dressed and we will be serving our popular Sunday roast with the choice of a starter and dessert too. We have local ice cream from Dairy Dreams for those that fancy it and also stock a range of local ales and wines so you can raise a glass to Mum! Take a walk around the meadows and enjoy the signs of Spring starting to peep through. Let’s hope it will be a beautiful Spring day but should the weather not be on our side, there are plenty of other ways to spend your day… Why not explore the exhibition instead, meeting the mammoth and flying over the Shropshire hills? Browse our shop too for the perfect present to take away and check out the craft room, completely free of charge and perfect for making Mum a card!
