The Shropshire Way long distance walk explores the beautiful historic border county of Shropshire. It offers a comprehensive network of route sections that can be tailored to individual requirements, providing opportunities for multi-day walks of varying length, as well as linear day walks linked to public transport. At its heart is Shrewsbury, whose mainline station on the National Rail Network, facilitates easy access from and to anywhere in Britain.

The trail conveniently falls into two separate areas of the county. The northern part of the Shropshire Way is generally pastoral and peaceful in nature. Whilst predominantly mixed farmland, it is full of interest. It features old market towns, attractive ancient villages with red sandstone churches and traditional country pubs, scenic canals, meres and mosses, nature reserves, country park sites, and the fascinating Lime Works Heritage site at Llanymynech. Its western upland border section offers delightful woodland, old Oswestry racecourse and impressive sections of the 8thC Offa's Dyke earthwork.

The southern part of the Shropshire Way takes you through Shropshire Hills AONB and adjoining attractive countryside, visiting various historic market towns and places of interest. It is more undulating and demanding in nature, but the effort required to cross the county's highest hills is rewarded by stunning scenery and breathtaking views.
