Camping at West Midlands Showground: Grass pitches

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 dogs to run around 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.

Anyone fishing for a good time should swim back to site and cast a line in the Severn. Part of the Greenhous West Mid Showground, the site’s facilities are 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 cooking more substantial meals.

    First time here and stayed 3 nights from New Years Eve. I really loved how close we were to the town, approximately 10 min walk. The site was vast as you can imagine for a showground but only a handful in campers/motor homes which was fabulous for me!! Would be great in the summer especially for children having all that space.
    We were greeted by a lovely lady who showed us 3 areas where we could pitch which was brilliant to have the choice! We were given a great information pack with lots of leaflets about things to go see, visit and do in the area.
    I would definitely go back to Shrewsbury as it has so much to see and do and this site is perfect for visiting there

    Location excellent, really nice guys running the place, no toilets or showers working due to the severe sun zero temperatures, they were doing their best to get things going again. 20 minutes walk into the town centre, would be a great place in the summer
    Bit wide level pitches with power and some with water point.
    I would visit again no problem

    The space! Good sized pitches, and good space between pitches. The informality and friendliness of staff. Toilets and showers were clean. Great location, so near to Shrewsbury.

    Disliked: 

    The washing up area. There was hot water, but took an age to trickle out!

Local attractions

Once Shrewsbury has been 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 past) 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, while 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 (19.1 kilometres)
  • Darby Houses (Ironbridge) (19.9 kilometres)
  • Blists Hill Victorian Town (20.2 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Attingham Park Estate: Cronkhill (7.3 kilometres)
