An historic market town right at the foot of The Wrekin, Wellington boasts a thriving town centre packed full of high street stores, independent boutiques, cafes, restaurants and wine bars – as well as some renowned real ale inns and even its own micro-brewery.
Wellington’s bustling indoor market draws visitors from across the county and beyond, whilst its packed programme of events and festivals make sure there’s always something fun and fabulous to do for all ages, come rain or shine. Make sure you don’t miss the Literary Festival, the Wrekin Barrel Race, the Mid Summer Fayre, and of course the Walking Festival – plus lots and lots more.
Wellington has been awarded Walkers are Welcome status, with regular guided walks available, not least to the summit of The Wrekin, 1300 ft above sea level and boasting breathtaking views which take in Cheshire, Worcestershire, Wales and the West Midlands.
The town’s train station connects directly with Shrewsbury and Mid-Wales to the West, and Wolverhampton and Birmingham to the East, plus there are miles of bridleways, cycle paths, and rambling routes to suit even the most adventurous.
So be sure to visit Wellington and enjoy a true taste of Shropshire. Explore. Stay. And enjoy.
