Welcome to Shropshire, a strikingly beautiful landlocked county in England. It borders Wales to the west, Cheshire to the north, Staffordshire to the east, and Worcestershire and Herefordshire to the south.
The county town is Shrewsbury, with other places of interest including Wellington, Madeley, Oswestry, Bridgnorth, Ludlow, Whitchurch, Newport and Market Drayton. Wherever you go, you’re bound to find an excellent place to get an Afternoon Tea in Shropshire.
Tourists come from far and wide to appreciate the captivating countryside that makes up the vast majority of the county. The Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty covers about a quarter of its entire landmass, mainly to the south.
In the low-lying northwest, overlapping the border with Wales, meanwhile, is the Fenn’s Whixall and Bettisfield Mosses National Nature Reserve. This is one of the most important and best-preserved bogs in Britain.
Why not start your visit by walking through the serene Shropshire Hills or exploring the history of Ludlow Castle? Take in some fresh air – all the while working up an appetite. Once lunchtime comes around, be sure to spend time in an Afternoon Tea Shropshire establishment. Treat yourself to sandwiches, scones and cake washed down with a nice, hot brew or even a glass of bubbly!
