Craven Arms, Shropshire

Craven Arms is more than just a pub name, it’s the gateway to the Marches.

Situated on the frontier of the old Marcher kingdom, Craven Arms became an important trading post between Wales and England. Surrounded by the Shropshire Hills, Craven Arms is the natural start point for many long distance and shorter circular walks so it is unsurprising that it is also home to the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre and Shropshires' very own Mammoth.

Just out of the town is the romantic Stokesay Castle - a 13th Century fortified manor house said to be so beautiful that when attacked no-one had the heart to destroy it - Be prepared to fall in love. Also in Craven Arms is the Land of Lost Content Museum – and eclectic collection of bygone everyday artefacts, guaranteed to stir the memories.
