About Shropshire

Shropshire, on the border of England and Wales, is full of peaceful canals, meres and lakes. This is a destination where you can truly escape fast-paced modern life and find unspoilt landscapes. If you're after a more active break, try the rapids on the River Teme. For breathtaking views, cross the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct in a narrowboat - watch out, it's a long way up, 125ft high and 1,000ft long! 


The flat, calm waters of Bomere are perfect for water skiing and wakeboarding. There is plenty of tuition for all levels of experience and a ski lodge for those making a break of it.
