Castles, zoos and trains

This is a list of attractions we suggested for guests to do on the Sunday after the wedding. It’s a bit late for you now, but maybe some drive-by googler will benefit from from this catalogue of what the South Shropshire area has to offer.

Cleobury Mortimer

3.7 miles from Neen | Read more

Picturesque town on the side of Clee Hill with lots of pubs offering food.

Tenbury Wells

8.8 miles from Neen | Read more

Sharon’s home town. A very attractive small market town with some notable old buildings, a river, a museum (open 2 til 4 on Sundays) and some fine places to eat and drink, especially the Pembroke and the Ship (booking recommended).

Burford House & Gardens

9.7 miles from Neen | Read more

Seven acres of gorgeous gardens in a beautiful setting, and a very pleasant place to stop for lunch. Also worth seeing is Burford Church next door. Only a mile from Tenbury Wells, so you could easily see both in an afternoon.

West Midland Safari Park

11.9 miles from Neen | Read more

Drive right up close to white tigers, cheetahs, giraffes, elephants, fruitbats, sea lions, hippos, penguins, snakes, tarantulas, rhinos, wild dogs, wallabees, lions, deer, camels, lizards, zebras, goats and a gnu. You can even feed some of the animals! Plus: an amusement park.

Severn Valley Railway

13.8 miles from Neen | Read more

This old-fashioned steam railway makes a great day out. You can ride from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth and back again, making all the “choo choo” and “toot toot” noises you desire. A highlight is crossing the River Severn on the 200-foot single-span Victoria Bridge.

Historic town stuffed with beautiful buildings, including the magnificent ruins of Ludlow Castle. Also reknowned for its fine cuisine, boasting seven restaurants with entries in the current Michellin guide. Visit De Grey’s Tea Rooms for fine cream cakes.
