Top 100 Attractions Review

The Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre really did impress me as the centre really does live up to its name. This place is a hive of discovery and at every turn you cannot fail to be amazed at the different things on display. They have utilised every space wisely and their main focus is to educate you about the land around the centre, the land you will no doubt be exploring yourself whilst there. The Shropshire hills as a destination however is really a magical place to visit, as the further you explore the more surprising things you will uncover. But at the discovery centre, it's a great place to start your journey around the hills and also a great place to end up as their café style restaurant serves up Traditional home-cooked food made using local produce from the farms that surround them, certainly a rarity these days.

A visit to the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre offersopportunity to learn more about the landscape of the Shropshire Hills, its geology, history and beauty. The centre, the only grass-roofed public building in Shropshire, has an excellent exhibition, café, free car park, library and tourist information facilities. There are regular activities run for families, particularly during holiday times, along with a popular schools education programme. Many activities use the Onny Meadows - twenty five acres of land available for walking and exploring - which is on the doorstep and is home to species such as heron, kingfisher and wagtail. There are also several signposted walks and cycle routes to enjoy.
