Fun Things to do in Shrewsbury

Shrewsbury is one of these places which has a lot of hidden gems which, if found, can transform your time in the town.  Just north-west of Birmingham, this historic town has styli retained its medieval street layout.  In this article, we will outline some of the best things for you to do in Shrewsbury.

The Adventure Rope Course

We have to admit, this may not be the ideal activity for many people, who would rather spend their time relaxing.  However, this would certainly be our first point of call!  If you are looking for a bit of energetic fun, head on down to this course at the Albrighton Hall Hotel.  This Rope Course is a multiple activity adventure game for all the family.  Head on down there and try The Giant Swing, The Leap of Faith, The Parachute Simulator and the Adventure Tunnels.

Battlefield Falconry Centre

If the first item on the list does not sound like your cup of tea, then this one might be more like it.  Shrewsbury has a falconry centre where you can visit to see and interact with these beautiful birds.  Take yourself on a walk through the stunning countryside and you will be able to guide a Harris Hawk to your gloved fist after she follows you through the trees. Don’t miss out on this chance to experience this true bond between man and the bird.

Long Mountain Pony Trekking

Go on one of these well-renowned pony treks and experience the beautiful Shropshire hills like never before.  It does not matter whether you are a beginner or an experienced rider, all of the ponies and horses are carefully selected due to their relaxed and passive temperament.  There are not many ways you can spend a day which are more relaxing than this!

Drummond Outdoor

Back to a suggestion for those who are more inclined towards seeking thrills, we recommend you visit the Drummond Outdoor centre, where you can get involved in a whole range of activities, including water sports such as kayaking and canoeing.   This is a perfect way to spend the day, as long as you don’t mind the possibility of getting a bit wet!  We highly recommend that you check this place out, especially if are visiting during the warmer summer months.

AMF Bowling

Now we’re getting on to the more late night attractions.  This is by no means unique to Shrewsbury, but bowling is always a good night out regardless.  You can head down there whether you are just a couple or you are part of a larger group.  Have a few games of bowling and have a few drinks at the same time and you’ll be well on your way to a good night out. 


Along the same lines, you could visit one of the local bingo halls if you are looking for some night time excitement.  Or, if you would rather just stay at home and enjoy the gambling thrill in comfort, you could always play at online bingo sites.  There are absolutely loads of choices that you could select from.  Today, there are well over 400 sites available and the process of weeding out the bad ones can be quite a task. Fortunately for you, there are some sites dedicated to reviewing online bingo sites in order to be able to recommend you the best ones.  You may want to stick with only the newest sites in the industry.  If so, click here for new bingo sites and you will be guaranteed a good time.
