Whatever your age, or the age of your children, put a visit to the Ironbridge World Heritage Centre at the very top of the list. There’re over 10 museums within the site and it provides one of the best, and most colourful, ways of learning about the industrial revolution. Shropshire is studded with many attractive and historic villages including Ludlow, the food capital of Britain, and Much Wenlock, which is home to the modern Olympics. Darwin was born in the nearby county town of Shrewsbury – famed for its characterful black and white timbered buildings. Shropshire has more than its fair share of historic houses and gardens so bring your National Trust membership with you – or else consider joining up. If and when you’ve exhausted all the sights of Shropshire (it will take a while though), there are plenty of picture book castles to visit just over the border into Wales.
