Shropshire: rich in history and ideal for school trips
The West Midlands
Lacking a large urban area (although Telford is growing rapidly and will no doubt eventually join up with Wolverhampton and the larger Birmingham connurbation), Shropshire has largely managed to hang on to its rural charm and historical legacy. Consequently you will discover an extraordinary wealth of culture on any field trip to the villages and towns here. Encompassing a region known as the Welsh Marchers, the county is peppered with castles, and decorated with market towns featuring defensive walls and medieval market squares. However, progress did not stop in the Middle Ages, but rather continued with a rich history of nationally important technological development, and world famous scientific thinking.
School Trip Access
Perhaps one of the greatest advantages for Shropshire when it comes to school visits, is its location. Getting here from major centres like Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham is very quick and easy, so it is natural that with such a large target market, the county makes the most of its appeal to students. If you are within striking distance of Shropshire, make sure you take a look at what the county has to offer - with most venues near one of the main towns, access is quick and easy.
Whatever the educational focus of your fieldtrip, the county has a large number of trips and tours to tempt teachers and students alike. To find out more you may either use the link on the left to discover everthing the region has to offer, or let us tempt you with a selection of what we consider the best school trip venues in Shropshire. We have visited all three more than once and would recommend them without hesitation.
The county of Shropshire makes up a large part of the area known as the West Midlands of England. The main county towns include Whitchurch and Oswestry and Market Drayton in the North of the county. Ludlow and Craven Arms to the South, and right in the middle is the principal town of Shrewsbury.
