Shrewsbury is located between not one but two World Heritage Sites. There’s the Ironbridge Gorge, with the World’s first iron bridge and 10 hands-on interactive museums (including Blists Hill Victorian Town and Enginuity) - and Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal World Heritage Site; eleven miles of World Heritage on the border of Shropshire and North Wales.

Shropshire has castles and abbeys, plenty of English Heritage and National Trust properties, stately homes and gardens, not to mention Ludlow and the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There’s also Wroxeter Roman City, once the fourth largest city in Roman Britain, just 15 minutes drive from Shrewsbury.
