Walks in Shropshire

From walks in the Shropshire hills to completing a 177-mile long national trail, you’ve got plenty of opportunities to enjoy nature and a breath of fresh air in Shropshire.


22 minute drive 

Take on an iconic hill.  

Experience breath-taking views while you walk the Wrekin, a 20-acre Iron Age hillfort and one of the best walks in Shropshire. Put some comfortable walking boots on, tread on volcanic rock millions of years older than Mount Everest and see if you can reach the summit. If it’s a clear day you might be able to see 17 counties from the 407m (1,335ft) summit.

2 hour 15 minute drive 

Explore the beauty of Shropshire.  

What’s one of the best walks in Shropshire? It could be Offa's Dyke Path National Trail (you won’t know until you try it). This route crosses wild moorland, attractive wide river valleys and ancient woodland. As well as seeing some stunning flora and fauna, you’ll also come across hill forts, castles, abbeys, and much more.

30 minute drive 

The perfect family walk.  

Enjoy a day out at Weston Park, a country house first built in 1671. Choose four different walking routes and uncover the beauty that lies in 1,000 acres of landscaped park. The oldest oak trees in the parkland dating back to 1410 can be seen on the Knoll Tower Walk, and you might be able to spot some deer on the Shrewsbury Drive Deer Walk.

Walk along Britain’s longest river.  

Treasure moments of peace and quiet near River Severn, which runs for 220 miles from Wales through England's southern counties. Opt for the Iron Bridge Loop from Madeley walking route, take a jacket with you in case of rain and appreciate the natural beauty around you.
