Shropshire is one of the most unspoilt counties in England and has a lot to offer visitors. The main town is Medieval Shrewsbury with its castle and beautifully preserved timber framed buildings. Clive House, home of Clive of India is a popular attraction here. Nearby the pre historic barrows of Long Mynd and Wenlock Edge are great for walking. Wenlock Priory in Much Wenlock is particularly atmospheric, and Much Wenlock is the originator of the modern Olympic Games.
Shropshire is best known for its local food production which is celebrated in the town of Ludlow. There are markets three times a week, traditional food shops and good restaurants, and each year a well known food festival celebrating local produce. The nearby castle and museum tell the history of the town and are popular with the many visitors. At Stokesay Castle there is a beautiful garden and fortified manor house.
