The small and historic town of Bishop's Castle nestles in the south Shropshire hills, and is in an area renowned for its beauty and tranquillity. The town has a thriving weekly market as well as a number of independent specialist shops that offer a range of fascinating products. There are excellent pubs and cafes and two very good museums â€“ the Railway Museum and the delightfully-named House On Crutches Museum. Bishop's Castle is the perfect place from which to explore this part of Shropshire. As well as enjoying all the opportunities for discovering the beautiful countryside, visitors can also explore the nearby towns of Ludlow and Shrewsbury. Other local attractions include the famous Offa's Dyke, the Severn Valley Railway and Powis Castle.
A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was "the quietest place under the sun" and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.
