- About Church Stretton
Church Stretton is very well situated to act as a base for visits to many local attractions. At the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are market towns & villages, castles, hill forts and much much more nearby. Whether you walk, go by train, car or bus...with great scenery along the way – you can enjoy a great many days out from this What to See section.
It’s not just the stunning scenery that will captivate you, but the people and places, its history and heritage, the walking and wildlife, its food and festivals. Combined they offer magical experiences. Such magic is best summed up by the Independent newspaper review in 2009 which claimed Church Stretton to be "England’s ultimate retreat".
Please see 'What to Do' section for activities which are more physically demanding like walking, sports, kiddies play barns and leisure centres.
