Wow what a place! Definitely not for anyone who cannot manage strenuous physical exertion! The steps up to the top are very steep and plentiful - i’d fefonatley avoid this on a rainy day as the steps would be slippy. The views are amazing and...More

Went here on a dry day. Not been before. Just outside Shrewsbury by a few miles. Interesting afternoon and plenty of opportunity for children to let off steam.

It's over £8 per person to visit. Parking is free however. A well timed visit on a week day could mean you have the entire park to yourself which is quite magical.

Great time spent climbing over rocks, in deep, dark caves, crevices and magnificent views over the North Shropshire countryside. The kids can burn off a lot of energy as well as get involved in the magic of the mythology.

sorry, bit late. There's a Cafe near the entrance, but think it may refuse entry to dogs. We didn't take ours. Don't think there are many covered areas.
