In North Shropshire, Whitchurch provides an excellent base for cycling, walking, fishing, visiting Ironbridge World Heritage Site, shopping visits to nearby Chester and Shrewsbury or exploring the Welsh Marches or Shropshire Lakes - all around half an hour's drive away.
Whitchurch is positioned on a Roman route to Chester and near a border that was fought over for many centuries, so there are many sites of historical interest in the area. Parking in the town centre is free and there are plenty of spaces. If you visit Victoria Park in the centre of town you will see several short walks taking you out of town and along canalside and into a nearby Country Park.
A walk to Grindly Brook Cafe is always worth it as the food there is great and you can sit and watch the canal boats in the locks. Nearby Hawkstone Park is popular with both young and old, although it is admittedly for the fitter amongst us. It is made up of intricate pathways, ravines, arches and bridges and King Arthur addressing his troops in the awesome caves.
