Shropshire is a perfect blend of old and new. With the rolling countryside and fantastic links to Birmingham and the North West, you can live in a beautiful place that’s well connected. You’ll never be short of something to do – quaint towns are scattered across the county with beautiful scenery and award winning food, hiking and walking opportunities combined with a rich history of ancient civilisations from the Iron Age hillfort in Oswestry to the ruins of a roman city in Wroxeter.
