Bishops Castle

Bishop''s Castle is a small, yet perfectly formed medieval market town set in the charming rural scenery of South Shropshire. This is the place to get away from it all amongst unspoilt countryside dotted with sleepy villages and picture postcard views.

Designated as an Area Outstanding Natural Beauty, the countryside around Bishop''s Castle is perfect for anyone looking to get back to nature and enjoy some of the most delightful walking country in the UK. There are plenty of trails for all abilities, from the long distance Shropshire Way to some lovely, shorter, circular strolls around the town’s environs. There are numerous friendly pubs in the area at which to rest and enjoy a pint of locally brewed ale and some delicious home cooked food.

The town centre is graced with a lovely mix of architectural styles, and there is a selection of shops and galleries, selling everything from local crafts to holiday essentials. The town hosts regular farmers'' markets selling a variety of delicious organic produce, so pack up a picnic and head up to the site of the ancient castle at the top of the town; the views are to die for!

The town is rightly proud of its past and has two museums, one detailing the fascinating past of the local area and another that celebrates the rich history of the famous Bishop’s Castle Railway.
