Welcome to Bridgnorth
Bridgnorth is a truly beautiful town in the east of Shropshire. Once a major port in Europe, this settlement was historically two towns: High Town on the upper slopes, and Low Town below it. Bridgnorth is scattered with interesting historical sites, including the ruins of its castle and an iron footbridge. The whole town is surrounded by stunning views of rolling countryside, which Charles I once described as “The finest in all my kingdom”.
See some of Stourbridge
Stourbridge is an aesthetic and historical town a short drive east of Bridgnorth, and a popular hub for visitors to the East Midlands. Known for its historic glass industry, and as the home of the Stourbridge Lion steam engine, the first train to run in the United States, this town has a palpable sense of history, and is surrounded by charming villages such as Kinver, Belbroughton and Churchill, with Birmingham just a stone’s throw to the east.
The Severn Valley Railway - a delightful trip back in time
The Severn Railway runs full-size, largely steam-hauled passenger locomotives on lines through the stunning Severn Valley between Bridgnorth, Kidderminster, and Bewdley. Visitors will enjoy a fascinating experience looking around the Engine House in Highley, and getting an up-close look at the railway’s reserve collection of steam engines, themed exhibitions, and a delightful gift shop.
