Head to Shrewsbury, Shropshire’s county town. As well as being famed for its black and white medieval buildings, castle, spires, abbey and parklands, it’s also renowned for its independent shops. Navigating the Shuts, Passageways and cobbled streets can almost be as much fun as the shopping!

There’s also Ironbridge, just a short drive from Church Farm. Individual shops and galleries (not to mention tea rooms, pubs and quality restaurants) can all be found along the banks of the river.

There are plenty of market towns in Shropshire to tempt you and even our ‘Malls’ offer a different experience – Shrewsbury’s Parade Shopping Centre has 30 independent shops and not a high street name in sight.
