Many people come to Shropshire simply to lose themselves in the glorious countryside and spend every day out in the hills in the open air. However, the region also offers a variety of tourist attractions which can provide entertainment on a rainy day, fun for children, or give fascinating historical context to local explorations. Ranging from castles to farms, the selection is a good one and many visitor attractions offer the added bonus of good tea rooms.
