Visit Us

From our home in the heart of the Shropshire Hills, we love to encourage the exploration and discovery of our surrounding landscape that is steeped in history, nature, and local culture.

With a café offering locally inspired food and 30 acres of riverside meadows, we invite you to explore within stunning surroundings.

Our exhibition, tracing the Shropshire Hills Through Time from the Condover mammoth onwards, inspires a journey of the area. Our jam-packed event programme consists of large-scale community events as well as courses, workshops and family activities alongside our commitment to our diverse education programme with thousands of school children visiting every year. Take home a memory of your day or a unique gift from the wide variety available in our gift shop.
