Bridgnorth Castle Hill Railway

Reviewed By norman r - Birmingham, United Kingdom

Bridgnorth castle hill railway is a great little Victorian way of saving the 200 or so steps from high to low towns in Bridgnorth at £1.60 return this is a little bit of local history that is well worth supporting, if only to save having to take the steps.

Bridgnorth Castle and Grounds

Reviewed By Pixel_Reiver - Stocksfield, United Kingdom

We had a spare 20 minutes in Bridgnorth and were keen to see a little more than the shops and restaurants so took a stroll to the castle ruins. Firstly, we were pleasantly surprised at the curved pathway around the grounds' exterior from which to view lower parts of the town. Secondly, the Gardens within the castle grounds, although fairly small were very well maintained and had a nice range of trees and foliage even though our visit was early Winter (Nov) it was evident that alot of thought and care had gone into their design maintenance. The castle itself was a little disappointing however this could be vastly improved with new signage containing a visual reconstruction and more engaging historical notes.

Bridgnorth Town Hall

Reviewed By Val W - Birmingham, United Kingdom

The town Hall is very pretty but similar to many more around the country. The market stalls underneath have a variety of things to buy which I probably could have taken mire advantage of if I hadn't got there as they were starting to pack up.

Rays Farm

A great place for a family outing where children of all ages enjoy the farm animals and pets.

Reviewed By Karen R - Bridgnorth, United Kingdom

This is our second year with our little Granddaughter, although we went with our own children many years ago! Father Christmas is very pleasant indeed and the experience with him is very nice. The farm animals, Owls, deer, horses appeared sad which was a little off putting. I don't know what you can do about that but maybe if deer were in the field? The nativity barn we liked, thank you. We had lunch in the cafe which was excellent service and quality of a snack.

Daniels Mill

Reviewed By GillyB23 - Essex

Visited Daniels Mill not realising that the admission fee included a tour of this lovely old building! The tour guide/current owner is very enthusiastic about the building and his heritage, and rightly so. There are steps inside the mill so not good for those with walking difficulties and although dogs are allowed on site, they are not allowed inside the mill itself. The mill is shown working for a couple of minutes only as it rubs against the building, but this is long enough for you to get the idea of how everything functions. Some of the cakes in the on-site tea shop are made using the flour ground here. A very picturesque place; look out for the trains on the viaduct running on the Severn Valley Railway; all very educational and well worth a visit.

The Theatre on the Steps

Reviewed By Chimpanzee1001 - Telford, Shropshire

2nd of 3 visits to see Darkside Performing the Pink Floyd Show, Wonderful intimate theatre. Comfortable Seating 3hrs just flew by, Recommend that you order interval drinks as it can take quite a while to get to the bar, the prices are very reasonable.
Only issue is the access, you have to either go up or down a flight of cobbled steps. I will be booking seats as there is some more great shows being advertised.

Upton Cressett Hall

Upton Cressett Hall is a privately owned Elizabethan House open to the public on Wednesdays and Sunday during the summer months and for groups all year by appointment. The holiday accommodation available all year round. The Hall has an extraordinary history with guests including the Prince in the Tower, Prince Rupert and Baroness Thatcher. A magical step back in time with delicious cakes and tea served in a medieval tea tent or the Great Hall dining room. Winner of Best Hidden Gem in the UK at 2011 Hudson's Heritage Awards.

Reviewed By Gay W - Shrewsbury, United Kingdom

This ancient house - 14th Century with brick 'covering' lies at the end of a lane in deepest Shropshire. Visitors are treated to a guided tour by the owner (who lives in the house) and tea and cake either in the garden or the great hall. This is very different from the usual 'stately home' and all the better for it. The history is fascinating & very little has been added since the 16th century. Well worth a visit.
