Things to do in Shropshire with dogs
Bursting with things to see and do, you can rest assured that everyone’s tails will be kept wagging throughout your Shropshire holiday.
Hike up The Wrekin
Best for: Energetic pups
Set off for a hike up The Wrekin, the most iconic peak in the Shropshire Hills. Not half as fearsome as it sounds, The Wrekin is in fact a very little mountain. However, you’ll still be rewarded by splendid views over the local landscape from the summit.
Ironbridge Gorge Museums
Location: Ironbridge Gorge
Best for: An exciting day out
Explore the fascinating history of the Industrial Revolution, wander the streets of an authentic Victorian town and descend underground into The Tar Tunnel. Kids, grown-ups and pups alike will love a day out at the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge Gorge.
Location: Bishop’s Castle
Best for: History buffs
Perched high upon a rocky mound, the atmospheric ruins of Clun Castle are a magnificent sight to behold. Wrap up warm and bring a picnic - you can let the pup off the lead to explore while you sit back and tuck into your sandwiches.
Best for: A relaxing afternoon on the river
Set off for a sailing adventure along the River Severn on the trusty Sabrina Boat. Departing daily from Victoria Quay in Shrewsbury, you and the pup will enjoy pretty views and plenty of photo opportunities on this lovely river trip.
Nearby dog-friendly pitstop: When you’re done sailing, pop into The Armoury for a pint and a bite to eat.
Wroxeter Roman City
Best for: An educational day out
Another one for the history aficionados in the group, Wroxeter Roman City is an ancient marvel indeed. Explore the remains of the fourth largest city of Roman Britain, imagining what life would have been like for its inhabitants over 2,000 years ago.
Nearby dog-friendly pitstop: Back in Shrewsbury, the CAMRA award-winning Prince of Wales is the perfect spot for you to warm up in.
