Shrewsbury highlighted by The Times as top global holiday destination for 2023
Thanks to its fascinating industrial heritage, The Times recommends an October visit to Shrewsbury, coupled with a scenic drive through the Scottish highlands, a walking tour of Andalusia, and a tour of Burgundy's vineyards amongst others.
"For those fascinated by England’s industrial heritage, a new self-drive trail through Shropshire reveals the rejuvenated Flaxmill Maltings in Shrewsbury, the Longdon-on-Tern Aqueduct and Daniels Mill in Bridgnorth. At Iron Bridge you will discover the forerunner of the modern skyscraper, the oldest (and steepest) inland funicular railway in the UK, pioneering blast furnaces, iron foundries, mills and more. Stay at Drapers Hall, a striking half-timbered property that was established in 1465 and now serves as a six-room boutique hotel in the heart of Shrewsbury."
