Mini guide to Shifnal

     

Situated between Birmingham and Shrewsbury in the county of Shropshire, Shifnal was once an important London-Holyhead staging post and was the area where Charles II hid after the battle of Worcester. Shifnal also has a Charles Dickens connection and appeals to the more discerning visitor.

Nearby quality attractions include: Boscobel House, a beautifully restored black and white building; the Royal Air Force Museum in Cosford, with its numerous historic aircraft collected over the last 80 years; and Weston Park House & Gardens. Weston Park is a must-see for its fantastic paintings and furniture, huge park area, miniature railway and woodland adventure playground.

The town of Shifnal received its market charter in the 13th century and as a result the main street was widened in celebration. Today it is lined with quality accommodation and several pubs and inns. Charles Dickens once stayed here, evidence of which can be discerned in the 'Old Curiosity Shop', while Little Nell is buried in the Tong churchyard.

Those into long distance walking will be pleased to hear that the Monarch's Way footpath runs through the area, a walk of over 400 miles, while the picturesque Severn Valley Railway is just to the south at Bridgnorth (northern terminus). Ironbridge is also nearby and the medieval town of Shrewsbury lies to the west and Birmingham to the east.

Exit 4 on the M54 motorway feeds Shifnal, while two trains per hour run from London's Euston Station and three trains per hour from Birmingham International Airport via Birmingham and/or Wolverhampton. National Express coaches run services to nearby Telford, from where local bus services go to Shifnal and Birmingham. Liverpool and Manchester international airports are the closest air terminals to Shifnal.
