Covid-19 Update

The Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre is reopening on 4th July

The staff at the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre are looking forward to welcoming visitors back from Saturday 4th July.
The Centre has new measures in place to keep all visitors and staff safe. All the staff have undertaken Covid-19 safety training to ensure they are well prepared in the best practices for opening safely.
The 30 acres of riverside meadows is a great place for social distance walks and children's trails.
The café will be serving a limited menu which will all be available to take away, with some indoor tables too.
The Centre has been awarded We're Good To Go by Visit England.

Centre Manager, Grant Wilson, says "We can't wait to welcome back our visitors, but it is very much safety first at the start. The centre will look a little different, with fewer tables and chairs and limited cafe offer. We have introduced extra cleaning protocols, signage and training and we ask our visitors to heed the safety advice provided so that they can be guaranteed a safe and enjoyable visit"

 

Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre has signed up to the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme. You can get 50% off your food and non-alcoholic drinks up to £10 per person. Available every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday until 31st August.

Whether it's a cup of tea to enjoy with your friend, an ice cream for the kids, a bacon butty or a meal the staff are ready to give you your discount.

Inside and outside seating is socially distanced so you can enjoy your café treats safely.

Severn Valley Railway

         
Birdgnorth Shropshire England
Description : 

The jewel of Shropshire


Looking for an escape back in time to a time without social media, mobile phones and thoughts of the pandemic? Look no further.

Like the river that runs alongside it, the Severn Valley Railway snakes through the beautiful Shropshire and Worcestershire countryside and has been providing steam train journeys for over five decades – celebrating 50 years of steam power in preservation last year.

With rolling stock over a century old and stations that have been preserved from the Victorian era, the SVR promises an vintage day out for all ages. What's more, the railway has an unrivalled selection of compartment carriages being used for its NEW excursion services, meaning your party can travel in comfort and style whilst being Covid-secure during your time on the railway.

Starting in Bridgnorth or Kidderminster, you'll meander through the glorious Severn Valley, stopping at a variety of locations to explore, shop, eat, drink, play, discover and generally adventure into the golden age of transport.
From The Engine House Visitor Centre at Highley – which gives you the chance to get up close to a variety of engines, sample of whole host of homemade treats in the café and shop 'till you drop – to picturesque Arley, which you'll recognise from some of your favourite TV shows and films.

It's not just a ride on the train though and the team at SVR have partnered with a selection of other local businesses to give you much more to explore during your next time on the Railway. Join the train at Kidderminster or Bridgnorth and have the opportunity to explore Arley Arboretum, walk alpacas, kayak or tour Bewdley Brewery.

Not that the railway is short of places to sup a tipple or two itself – with two fantastic real ale pubs serving up a selection of local at both ends of the line. The Railwayman's Arms, at Bridgnorth Station, has been a drinking establishment since it opened in 1861.
No two journeys on the SVR are the same – whether you're looking for thrills, a family day of fun or a relaxing day as a couple, there's something for everyone on the Severn Valley Railway.

You can book your socially-distanced table or private compartment for your next adventure now at www.svr.co.uk

Pumpkin Detectives Needed at Hawkstone Park Follies

Hawkstone Park Follies are asking kids to join them this half term and Halloween to help their resident trolls find a lost pumpkin.

 

Young explorers will need to follow the Halloween trail to find the letters which when spelt out will reveal the missing pumpkin's location. If successful, children will be awarded a Pumpkin Detective Certificate!

 

Follies Park Manager, Howard, said, "Our cheeky trolls have really captured the imagination of our young visitors who love trying to find them. Unfortunately, this mischievous bunch have lost a pumpkin, so we need some help finding it!

 

"This fun trail through our 100 acres of parkland and Grade I listed landscape of caves, bridges, tree lined walks, sandstone hills and towers, is the perfect way to get children enjoying some fresh autumn air and exercise in the great outdoors – with none of the scariness that often goes with Halloween events. We hope families will join us this half term."

 

The Halloween trail will run from the 24th October until the 1st November. Tickets for the Follies Park are now sold per car - £21 for a car with up to 3 people and £27 for a car with up to 7 people. Under 3's go free. Arrival is from 10am and the last entry will be at 2pm. Tickets can only be purchased in advance online at www.hawkstoneparkfollies.co.uk

Days Out at Hawkstone Park 


Hawkstone Park may have been the original "theme park" as it was laid out amongst the natural features of the North Shropshire landscape in the 18th Century by eminent members of the Hill family for the enjoyment of visitors to their family estate but eventually due to a lack of funds it fell into disrepair. In the 1980's its historic importance was recognised and it was lovingly restored and opened to the public once again some ten years later.

These days Hawkstone Park is one of Shropshire's premier outdoor attractions and it offers an exciting day out for families which is a little bit different. The beautiful woodland Follies Adventure Park has hidden pathways, caves, secret tunnels, and a grotto, and from the top of the Monument it is said you can see twelve counties!

The walk which is about 3km can be quite strenuous but there are shorter routes for you to enjoy. Due to the terrain not all areas are accessible for those with mobility issues but if would still like to enjoy the Park and see the views, then a Warden Safari is available for only a small extra cost. A season pass is available for local visitors which has an array of benefits such as free coffee and cake in the Café on certain dates. For more information on these or any of the services we offer within the Park, please call us direct on 01948 841777.

We invite you to come and enjoy a day's exploration followed by a hot meal or afternoon tea, locally sourced, in our newly refurbished Caspian's Café in the Visitor Centre which has plenty of indoor and outdoor seating.

If you are planning a full day out and live further way, the Hawkstone Park Hotel offers every comfort and all the facilities you would expect.

Of course Hawkstone Park also offers you the opportunity to play two of the finest Golf Courses in the West Midlands, and in addition we have the Short Course where you can play golf in an hour if you are a little short of time or want to bring the family. The driving range is open to visitors too.

Please contact us or check our website for further information on exciting Days Out at Hawkstone Park.
