This is border country and Shropshire’s history of conflict with Welsh marauders has left a legacy of storybook forts and castles. Try Blandings Castle, Powis Castle or Ludlow Castle. Prefer a more mythical feel? Take the King Arthur Trail. Man-made?

Walk or ride Housman’s blue-remembered Shropshire hills, rising Alpine-style from above Church Stretton, tee off on fine golf courses, or jump, tunnel and climb at The Adventure Ropes Course. Book a Bywater Cruise and watch the world go by from a canal boat tugged by a shire horse.
