Things to do around Shropshire

Shropshire, an underrated county straddling the border between England and Wales, offers a delightful mix of countryside, historic castles, and bustling towns. Whether you're planning a family-friendly day out or something just for the adults, here are some fantastic activities to explore in Shropshire:

1. See Shrewsbury from the River:
- If you're in the Welsh border town of Shrewsbury, hop aboard the vessel Sabrina for a scenic boat tour on the River Severn. With scheduled day trips, evening cruises, and private hire options, you can enjoy the sights from the outdoor top deck or relax in the comfortable lounge area. The knowledgeable guide onboard provides live commentary on the town's landmarks as you sail past.

2. Sunday Lunch on the Severn Valley Railway:
- Begin your adventure in neighboring Kidderminster (Worcestershire) and board the Severn Valley Railway. As the steam train chugs through the rolling hills of Shropshire's Severn Valley, indulge in a mouth-watering Sunday lunch. Choose between dining in a 1930s Great Western Railways Carriage or the more luxurious first-class carriage styled on the 1940s. Stewards ensure a delightful three-course meal, and you'll have ample time to soak in the views before reaching Bridgnorth. Cream teas are also available on weekday journeys.

3. Shropshire Raft Tours:
- Explore the county by water with Shropshire Raft Tours. Hire kayaks or canoes, or join a rafting tour on the Severn River. Pass attractions like the iconic Iron Bridge as you journey from Ironbridge to Jackfield. Safety provisions are provided, and a qualified skipper guides your rafting experience.

4. Outdoor Leisure Activities:
- Shropshire offers a range of outdoor adventures:
- Mountain boarding
- Clay pigeon shooting
- Quad trekking
- Archery
- Climbing
- Paintballing
- Fishing
- Glide over the Long Mynd in a two-seat glider.
- Try canoeing, rafting, or stand-up paddleboarding on the stunning River Severn².

5. Farm Attractions and Heritage Railways:
- Get up close to animals at Shropshire's fun farm attractions. Feed lambs, walk with hawks, brush alpacas, or ride ponies.
- Explore heritage railway lines, a popular attraction in the county.

Remember to check opening hours and book any tickets in advance. Whether you're cruising the river, enjoying a scenic train ride, or embarking on water adventures, Shropshire promises a memorable day out!
