Tourist Information

Why Bishop’s Castle, Shropshire, is one of the best places to live 2023 

‘This pretty town bursts with enthusiasm…’

‘Bishop’s Castle hums with independent shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants, B&Bs, two (two!) microbreweries, museums of rural life and railways, a weekly market, an eco-suburb, and I haven’t even got on to sports and recreation, let alone the walking festival. The town has long attracted alternative types, as my granny called them: artists, writers, the long-haired and crafty, the kind who can whittle the Cutty Sark from a twig.’ Tom Dyckhoff, The Guardian July 2017
