Discover the fantastic countryside, exceptional views and wonderful wildlife. Explore our Country Parks, heritage sites and play areas or get active on over 5,500 km’s of Public Rights of Way (that’s the same distance as Shrewsbury to New York… on your doorstep!).

Shropshire has many special landscapes including the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Stiperstones and Corndon Hill Country crossing the border in the south west of the county and the internationally important Meres and Mosses in the north. The Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal World Heritage Site also includes part of Shropshire around Chirk in the north.

On this website you will find lots of promoted routes for walking, cycling and riding across the county, from The Shropshire Way to Walking with Offa. Plus there are details of other fantastic activities you can do in the great outdoors, from archery to paragliding!

If you are looking for inspiration about where to go or what to do, the Top Experiences pages suggest a wide range of activities for all ages that highlight the incredible wildlife and history of Shropshire… or might just be fun!

Wherever you go and whatever you decide to do, we hope you enjoy Shropshire ‘s Great Outdoors!
