Welcome to the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre
Meet our Mammoth, enjoy our exhibition and explore our 30 acre meadow!

The award winning visitor attraction, voted as the Going Places, 'Midlands Family Attraction of the Year 2017'.

Take a stroll in our meadows, relax in our cafe and learn about the wonders of the Shropshire Hills landscape and history, including the best places to go, eat and stay.

Get up close and personal to Shropshire’s larger than life mammoth and step back into the Iron Age.

Enjoy our panoramic film, flying over the Shropshire Hills - You can see all the best bits and get the finest views without leaving the ground or climbing a single hill!

Set in a unique grass roofed building, the Discovery Centre has a popular café, with free WIFI, serving local lunches, frothy coffees & Shropshire cream teas - Eat in, eat out or take-away (perfect for a picnic)!

Just outside, there’s our 30 acre Onny Meadows, well signposted for gentle strolls along riverside paths, through wild flowers and woodland. Dogs are currently not allowed in the centre but well behaved dogs are welcome in the meadows so everyone can stretch their legs.

We are open daily throughout the year 10am - 5pm. 

Grow Cook Learn is the charity running the Centre which aims to connect people to the outdoor world, by giving them opportunities to discover and learn about the food, landscape and history of the Shropshire Hills.

We plan to develop the Discovery Centre as a vibrant visitor attraction, a haven for wildlife and a resource for the local community, offering opportunities for people to learn about and enjoy growing and cooking food. We rely on donations alongside the income from our cafe, exhibition and shop to keep the Centre open and to continue delivering our charitable aims.
