Planning your perfect Staycation in Shrewsbury and Shropshire
Home to the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, the UNESCO World Heritage Site at Ironbridge Gorge, Shropshire is a county that bristles with history and boasts some glorious countryside to explore.
A rural countryside idyll with a warm welcome
Shropshire is a place to wander and explore, where you can take it easy if you want, or be as adventurous and active as you like. This is English border country with a rich history with Wales to the west and Cheshire to the north.
This isn’t a place stuck in the past through, with a range of activities, sports and adventures to be found, from Axe throwing to climbing walls and everything in between!
Shrewsbury has it all
The boyhood home of Charles Darwin now boasts an unrivalled selection of independent boutiques and quirky shops to explore, letting you weave your way through the medieval streets and alleys that make up the old town, before returning to your hotel for a well earned rest and perhaps the pleasure of our renowned restaurant to enjoy.
Packages which include a two course dinner from our set menu, bed and breakfast are available with free cancellation up to 24 hours prior to check in.
Historic House and Castles
Shrewsbury is commanded by the red sandstone Castle protecting the town, now a fascinating museum to visit, celebrating the famous Shropshire Regiment. There are Castles and Country Estates for you to discover all over Shropshire and into neighbouring Wales
Museums & Art Galleries
There are some fascinating Museums and Art Galleries to explore including the old Shrewsbury prison, the famous Coalport China Museum and RAF Cosford for any budding pilots in your clan
Bring your bikes, your walking boots maybe the dog too! This neck of the woods has superb views, glorious countryside and just doesn't have the crowds and traffic of some parts of the country - the perfect spot to explore, run or even climb the walls!
Shrewsbury is one of those very few towns left with independent boutiques and quirky shops tucked away in ‘shuts and passages’ - just waiting to be explored for bargains and souvenirs
Gardens Parks & Walks
Shrewsbury has some delightful gardens and parks and there are plenty of walking opportunities here and in the surrounding countryside. Perfect for a breath of fresh air before a relaxing dinner back at Albrighton Hall
Theme Parks & Days Out
There is plenty to explore from your base in Albrighton. Iron Bridge Gorge is where the Industrial Revolution was forged and is now a World Heritage site. Or perhaps a new sport - Axe throwing, and perhaps afterwards maybe try a Prison Break!
