The experience with the hawks & owls was amazing! Im glad my boyfriend choose the wrong session! (We meant to pick the handling one only, but he took the hawk walk and handling session).

The beds are stuffed with wallflowers that will be fantastic in a few months, but now the snowdrops, crocus and a few daffodils make a wonderful sight. Moreover the neo-classical landscaping, pond and Fountain give added interest during the winter months. We couldn't linger because it was cold and damp, but we are just going to have to return in the summer when we can sit and enjoy!

The Dana prison, Shrewsbury was built in 1793 and for the past 200 years has be home to 1000's of criminals. Now its been opened to the public by Jailhouse tours, who run daily guided tours of the site, evening ghost tours, escape events, prison experience events and history days. Truly one of the UKs best visitor attractions The Dana prison tours are one not to be missed.
My sister and I had a fantastic time yesterday exploring the Georgian part of the prison through the underground tunnels. We didn’t quite know what to expect which if we’re honest actually made it all the more intriguing and exciting! An amazing experience to be led through these tunnels holding so much history. With our helmets, head torches and gloves (all provided) we were well prepared and safely led through by our guide, Lauren, whose knowledge and obvious love of this awesome place only added to our experience. Definitely worth a visit, would highly recommend. Thanks also to Ray and everyone on the team.

The spire of St Mary's is one of the tallest in England and for over 500 years it has dominated the skyline of Shrewsbury's old town. In 1739, showman Robert Cadman attempted to slide from it, head first, using a rope and a grooved breastplate. His engraved obituary stands outside the west door. The church is now the only complete Medieval church in Shrewsbury. It dates from Saxon times and has beautiful additions from the 12th-century onwards. Inside, the atmosphere is peaceful with the soaring stone arches giving way to the church's great treasure - its stained glass. There are panels in glorious colour including the world-famous 14th-century 'Jesse window' filled with figures of Old Testament kings and prophets. No other church in the country has a collection to equal it. The Café at St Mary's Church, Shrewsbury, run by the Battlefield 1403 farm shop and deli, is now open Monday - Saturday 10am - 4pm.
We visited this church and we were aware of the spirit of Christmas .To sit and and
Admire the high altar and the stained glass window,.The church is beautiful and the staff in there were very helpful.This was a suitable venue just to sit and chill out .
It is very near the main shops in the town and within easy reach .

An exhilarating walk up and along the ridge will give the visitor a wonderful view of the beautiful Shropshire landscape in all directions.
Free car park there. Several walks available online and from the nearby Bog Centre. There is a short, on the level, all abilities walk, so that people with mobility issues can still enjoy part of the area.
Personally I am not comfortable these days with all the stones up at the top along the ridge, but hundreds of people have no problems. Just me I'm afraid. But I can still get enjoyment out of a visit up there.

I stumbled on this place, I'd never heard of it, and was heading elsewhere. It's quite a remarkable story, and one I'm glad I now know something about. There's not masses here, but it's worth looking up and finding, it's a real hidden gem.

Went to see counterfeit stones at Theatre Seven. First time here. Brilliant auditorium comfy seats. Great sound. Staff friendly and more than helpful. I actually double booked the seats and they credited me for the overbooked seats. How honest was that. Will deffo go back as had a great night there.

St Chad's church is an unusual but very interesting building. The main area is round and this makes for an unusual lay out. Sitting downstairs you don't get the full feel for this layout so go upstairs to the balcony and look up to the beautiful ceiling as well as down to the ground floor.
I've been to many services and Concerts in the church and with it's lovely acoustics it makes for a wonderful couple of hours, whether you've come to worship or to soak up the beauty of the building.

This 18th-century home contains one of the most complete surviving collections of Regency style.
Lovely place to visit. Walks in woodland and round the deer park. Good children’s play area. Have to pay to get in unless a member of the National Trust. Lovely house to visit be we usually visit for the walks with our dogs
