Mini guide to Bridgnorth

     

Bridgnorth is a historical split-level market town situated between Birmingham and the Welsh border and is the northern terminus for the famous Severn Valley Railway. Most visitors come here for the railway, while the fine old buildings, colourful markets and intriguing old funicular railway provide fascinating sightseeing alternatives.

The old town of Bridgnorth is divided by a 100 foot sandstone cliff, with the Low Town running along the banks of the River Severn and the High Town commanding spectacular views over the entire valley. Connecting the two is England's oldest and steepest inland funicular railway offering a fun way to travel between the two places.

Bridgnorth consists of half-timbered buildings dating from the 17th and 18th centuries and the High Town boasts a Norman castle that dominates the town with its precariously leaning tower. Another must-see is the 17th century Town Hall which resides on wooden arches near the popular market.

Bridgnorth is also an interesting shopping destination, with its antique shops and larger stores, and there is a good range of eateries ranging from fast-food joints to curry houses and an excellent vegetarian restaurant. Bridgnorth also boasts more than a dozen traditional pubs and bars.

The Severn Valley Railway is Britain's number one steam railway that chugs its way through some of the country's most spectacular countryside and is an absolute must! Other nearby attractions include the medieval town of Shrewsbury, with its interesting web of ancient streets, while also on the River Severn is Worcester, famed for its Royal Worcester Porcelain and cathedral.

Bridgnorth is conveniently close to the M54, M5 and M42 motorways making access from Birmingham easy. Train/bus combinations via Wolverhampton are a common way to reach Bridgnorth or alternatively the train to Kidderminster and then the Severn Valley Railway from there. Birmingham International Airport is the nearest air terminal and three trains per hour run to Kidderminster.
