Camping at West Midlands Showground: Entrance

General

  • Peaceful family-friendly site on the banks of the River Severn
  • Shrewsbury sights, restaurants and shops within 15 minutes' walk
  • 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.

    Customer service by Jan. I have rated this site highly but unfortunately we haven’t stayed here yet. On the day before we were due to arrive Jan very apologetically phoned me up to say they had had to close the site due to the arrival of gypsies who had cleverly booked in as a rally and police were in attendance. Jan wanted to speak to people personally ref cancellation rather than email and couldn’t have been more apologetic saying that we would receive a full refund plus our three night stay at a later date. I really sympathise with this site and the staff who run it and hope they are now up and running again. Looking forward to booking again soon. Thank you.

    Really lovely laid back site. Showers and toilets great. Numerous Water points and bins dotted around. Large pitch sizes and plenty of open space for the kids to run around. The guy running the site really couldn’t do enough for us and was really helpful. Lovely walk into Shrewsbury itself was only 15 minutes along the river… will definitely be back!

    Whilst a pre booked 'rally' had to be turned away due we believe to being a group of travellers, but the site officials sorted it and whilst it was inconvenient as regards getting on and off the site during the day we felt we were being protected and felt secure.

Local attractions

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.

Must see

  • Much Wenlock Priory (11.9 miles)
  • Darby Houses (Ironbridge) (12.4 miles)
  • Blists Hill Victorian Town (12.5 miles)
