Book a Bridgnorth cottage and escape for a few days in this
delightful town nestling amid wonderful Shropshire
This unique town is divided into High Town and Low Town, linked by England's oldest and steepest funicular railway, or seven ancient series of steps up sandstone cliffs if you're feeling energetic! The old Bridgnorth Castle gardens at the top are a welcome spot to relax and soak up the views - little remains of the original building, which leans at a startling angle.
Follow the town trail and admire the floral displays - this town
has won numerous awards for its colourful pots and hanging baskets.
Historic buildings add charm and character - look out for the
magpie buildings, attractive 16th and 17th Century houses like
Bishop Percy's House, the timber-framed town hall and the
Italianate styled New Market Buildings housing the Childhood and
Costume Museum. Or sit awhile in the grounds of St. Leonard's
Church, an oasis of calm amid the town's hustle and bustle.
Enjoy the banter of the street market, browse inviting shops and
sample local delicacies at welcoming watering holes and
