Things To Do

Shropshire is often described as a hidden gem and offers a wide variety of pursuits and interests. More recently the county has become famous for its gastronomic excellence, with Ludlow boasting more Michelin starred restaurants than anywhere other than London. Closer to Cardington, Shrewsbury is also well served by a variety of places to eat.

Always famous for its beautiful countryside you can also enjoy a round of golf, go riding or experience some of the best river fishing in the country on the magnificent Severn. Ludlow racecourse also offers National Hunt horse racing.

For the historian amongst you both Shrewsbury and Ludlow are steeped in history and the pretty Victorian spa town of Church Stretton lies just to the south of The Royal Oak. Telford, the birthplace of industry, is just short ride away.
