Oswestry

The ancient market town of Oswestry has a long and turbulent history, largely due to its location close to the border between England and Wales. It also makes it the perfect destination for those looking to explore North West Shropshire and Mid Wales.

Oswestry is a busy town, yet its cobbled passageways and friendly people give it an intimate, rural feel. Because much of the town centre is a conservation area, you''ll find many fine examples of Georgian architecture sitting alongside old timber framed buildings.

For a good family day out visit Whittington Castle; this 12th century moated castle is set in stunning grounds that are free to explore, and there''s also a second hand bookshop that''s well worth checking out. Other great family attractions in the area include narrowboat trips, the Cambrian Heritage Railway and Museum and Oswestry Leisure Centre, where you can enjoy a dip in the pool.

Outdoors enthusiasts will find plenty to keep them busy here, with a variety of cycling and walking trails to choose from. The Shropshire Way Oswestry Loop offers a range of walks and you simply have to see Llanrhaeadr Waterfall; it''s the highest waterfall in England and Wales at 240ft, and if you take the footpath to the top, you''ll enjoy amazing views!

If you’re here in the summer head for the Oswestry Food Festival in July, where you can taste the very best of local produce. The cafe culture in the town is second to none; try the Marches blue cheese, made locally, or treat yourself to a gourmet sausage roll. There''s even a vineyard nearby if you fancy a glass of locally produce wine!
