Welcome to Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre
Mammoth list of summer events, right here, right now!

If you’re looking for somewhere to take the kids or grandkids during the summer holidays we have several family events to keep children and adults amused and entertained.

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

Take a balloon ride 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 serving local lunches, frothy coffees & Shropshire cream teas - Eat in, eat out or take-away! (perfect for a picnic)

Just outside there’s the 30 acre Onny Meadows, well signposted for gentle strolls along riverside paths, through wild flowers and woodland. Well behaved dogs are welcome so everyone can stretch their legs.
