There are ample shops in the area, together with traditional inns, one being The Lion at Malpas, a quintessentially British inn serving delicious food and drink, with beautifully designed seating spaces to relax in, it dates back to the 16th century and is a real gem. The area is scattered with holiday cottages, found tucked away in quiet parts of the town, or in the beautiful surrounding countryside. Without doubt the town's treasure is its church, built of rich red sandstone with good examples of fine medieval work.

It is good cycling countryside and boating is one of the pleasures of the nearby Shropshire Grand Union Canal. Cholmondeley Castle and Garden, is well worth visiting, one of the regions top tourist attractions.
