A designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Shropshire Hills covers one (very picturesque) quarter of the entire county. With that feeling of being just far enough from the hustle and bustle to feel magical, the hills make the perfect setting for a satisfying day’s walking during your break in the area.
The landscape’s diverse, so in any one walk you could pass sun-dappled woodland, sweeping valleys and peaceful farmland, and there’s a walking route to suit every kind of visitor. If you’re dreaming of gorgeous views, peeks into the area’s past and a refreshing pint of ale in a friendly pub, there are 18 waymarked pub walks throughout the Shropshire Hills.
The walks start from a selection of spots in the western half of the hills, and they’ve been carefully designed to showcase some of the area’s most striking views and local businesses at the same time. So, all you need to do is have a think about what you’d like to see during your walk and pick a route.
