Discover an area packed with scenic landscapes and diverse wildlife

With around a quarter of the county designated as an Area of Outstanding Beauty, it's no surprise that so many people choose to start a new adventure with a retirement property in Shropshire.

You can explore a hundred acres of landscaped parkland and rocky outcrops at Hawkstone Park, near Market Drayton, see ancient quarries and fossil-rich limestone at Wenlock Edge, or climb more than 1,300 feet to the summit of The Wrekin, where you can absorb panoramic views that reach 17 different counties.

You'll find 30 different species of birds to spot at Brown Moss, near Whitchurch, a range of farmyard animals at the Park Hall Countryside Experience, and more than 200 county wildlife sites in the expansive Shropshire Hills.

Retire to a rural county that's full of heritage

From cliff railways to ruined abbeys, there are plenty of intriguing historical sites and museums to explore around the county.

You'll find the world's first cast-iron arch bridge crossing the River Severn in the village of Ironbridge, the medieval ruins of an 11th-century Norman fortification at Ludlow Castle, and one of the best-preserved Iron Age hill forts in the UK at Old Oswestry.

There are military collections at the Shropshire Regimental Museum at Shrewsbury Castle, natural history at the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre, and ten different museums all within the Ironbridge Gorge, the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution.
