- Half an hour from Ironbridge Gorge and the Shropshire Hills
In need of an escape? Settle in at Camping at West Midlands Showground, a family-friendly Shropshire site less than 15 minutes’ walk from Shrewsbury town centre, where tourist sites and shopping are within easy reach and there’s plenty of green space for kids and the pooch to run wild on.
Peaceful urban getaways are a dream here: days can be spent wandering the winding medieval streets of Shrewsbury, exploring castle and abbey, strolling around gardens and parks, following the Darwin Town Trail (the evolutionist was born here) and taking boating trips on the Severn. Bliss, no?
Anyone fishing for a good time should swim back to site and cast a line in the Severn. On the Greenhous West Mid Showground, the site’s pretty basic, but it does have its own fishing rights – plus it's well set for getting the most out of Shropshire and Shrewsbury explores, and finding fab eateries, pubs and ways to pass the time will be a piece of cake.
Speaking of cake, there are plenty of restaurants in Shrewsbury for local bites, and barbecues are welcome on site for anyone keen to take care of themselves.

Thank You for your lovely comments, slight confusion on the pitch fee going to Cancer Research which we apologise for, the Showground is a charity (Shropshire & West Midlands Agricultural Society) All income comes into the Charity (There are no share holders or Trustees taking any monies out of the charity other than the very small admin team/staff - so yes all monies including the pitch fee (less the website commission) comes into our charity, we then make monthly donations into other areas of our rural community and help us support other charities in our community and these do include cancer research charities, where we either provide financial support or help with allowing our Showground to be used to support their fundraising activities and example of this, this year is both a Lingden Davies Colour Run and the Severn Hospice Inflatable Fun Run.
Thanks again for supporting our Charity!

Once Shrewsbury is well and truly explored (don’t forget a pitstop at The Mount, birthplace of Charles Darwin), venturing out into nature will be a welcome break from bricks and mortar. The site is a little over half an hour’s drive from the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where scenic wanders, horse riding, gliding and paragliding are the order of the day.
If those walking boots haven’t seen enough action, make tracks for Buttington (35 minutes' drive) to join the Offa’s Dyke long-distance path and follow 177 miles of England-Wales border – alternatively, rest weary legs with a scenic boat tour along the Severn, leaving 15 minutes away.
There’s plenty of history hereabouts, so dive right in with a look inside the fab 18th-century mansion at Attingham Park (and a stroll around the gardens and parkland) or a stop at the spectacular Sunnycroft villa in nearby Telford. Go from finery to industry by trundling along to the Ironbridge Gorge UNESCO site to explore the birthplace of the industrial revolution, making time for the recreated Victorian town of Blists Hill, the Coalport China Museum and the world’s first ever cast-iron bridge.
Stay in the past (the very, very distant path) with a trip to Wroxeter Roman City and Vineyard, or return to the present with some modern urban days: Telford is half an hour away and has a snowboard and skiing centre that should keep families entertained, and Birmingham Is a little over an hour and a half from base if a real big city vibe is needed.
