Tourist Attractions in Shrewsbury
Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre
An educational, entertaining day out near Shrewsbury. Highlights incl. a GPS treasure trail, simulated balloon ride and life size replica of a woolly mammoth! The centre focuses on interactivity and is perfect for the whole family or school trips.
Glos. Dog Lover said
This is our favourite 'pit stop' on our way to and from mid Wales. There is easy parking, interesting shopping and an excellent cafe. Nothing is too much trouble for the friendly cafe staff and the home made scones are to die for! Full marks.

Dog owners must sit outside and we were interested to watch a party of young schoolchildren on an 'adventure' visit. The teacher was truly inspirational.

Fortunately the weather remained fine on both visits but it would be helpful if a small area indoors could be made available to the increasing number of dog owners visiting the centre. It would be good for business too!

Highly recommended.
Acton Scott Historic Working Farm
This tourist attraction near Shrewsbury is packed with live demonstrations that reflect the real workings of a Victorian farm, as seen on BBC2's 'Victorian Farm'. Watch the blacksmith in his forge! Gasp at the huge Shire horses! Ideal for families, groups and school trips.

Our second visit to the farm (August 2019) and it was just as good as our previous visit. If your into farming history or even just like farms and farm animals, Acton Scott is the place to go. Watching the heavy horses doing what they do best is a wonderful sight but you're reminded that Shire horses are now more endangered than Pandas. The only downside to this visit was that many of the displays that we had seen in our previous visit weren't there and the hand milking of the cows, which I had the privilege to take part in and had enjoyed greatly last time, had been stopped some time ago. All this said and done, I would definitely recommend this place and would definitely go again.
