  • Hills on horseback: Dozens of circular bridleway routes to explore across the Long Mynd and Stiperstones,

  • Ride or walk the Jack Mytton Way.

  • Forage for fossils: Walk along Wenlock Edge – and understand why every geological period is represented in Shropshire – or - Be a billionaire – 700 million years of geology!

  • Cycling with Ease: Hire an electric bike – you’ve never gone up hills so fast before - or forget the easy option and take your mountain bike up ancient route,' such as the 5000 year old drovers route, The Portway, and along the top of the magnificent Long Mynd.

  • Stride or stroll across miles of grassy footpaths: The Shropshire Hills provide fantastic walking territory for all ages and abilities. Try the Shropshire Way or Wild Edric’s Way!

  • Be the king of the castle: Command an iron age fort at the top of Caer Caradoc – where it’s said Caractacus fought his last fight – with views to at least another 10 hill forts from the top.

  • Soar in the thermals: Glide, paraglide or hot air balloon in the UK’s best thermals - here above the Long Mynd (…or maybe just fly a kite).

  • Climb aboard a Shropshire Hills Shuttle bus: Running April to September these shuttles provide the easy way to tackle the gradients and it’s a downhill walk all the way back – you may even decide to stay on for the whole beautiful circuit, or meander along Wenlock Edge on the Wenlock Wanderer

  • Paddle in the stream in Carding Mill Valley or slide down its slopes in a cardboard box: find your inner child – and afterwards enjoy delicious tea and cakes at the National Trust’s Chalet Pavilion, or walk into town to explore the shops.

  • Streakers in the hills?: Spot a rare green hairstreak butterfly, an orchid or a pink wax cap mushroom on the hills.
