Peaceful, uncrowded and one of the few remaining rural idylls in England’s countryside, Shropshire is a large county with a long history. Castles and hill forts perch on dramatic landscapes, suggesting border skirmishes between ancient civilisations. In contrast, cultivated and delightfully ornate gardens are dotted across the county. The main county towns of Shrewsbury and Ludlow offer modern-day visitors a fascinating and entertaining mix of open-air markets, live music and gourmet food. For your trip to Shropshire, car hire offers the best way of getting around and seeing more of this relaxing county with tea rooms, country pubs, bustling market towns and remote hills – yet with quick access to the centre of Wales and the West Midlands. Visitors to Shropshire are well served by Enterprise Rent-A-Car branches in Telford (Stafford Park) and in Shrewsbury on the Whitchurch Road.
