  • 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.  more »
  • 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 ma...  more »

  • Very adventurous, magic 3 and half hours walking, with a few short break, endless steps up and down ,up and down. Throughout, the route is well maintained, ancient feature is kept. The route is very visitor friendly marked, emergency route, quick pull out route are all marked very well. Suitable for good and indeoeindep legs only. Perfect place for family with teens. Worth glowing review indeed.
  • Fantastic place to visit with the whole family. So so soooo much to explore and wander around, you can easily spend hours and hours here. Don't be put off by the price to get in, if you think the car parking is completely free, even if you're there all day, normally that would cost quite a lot and it is a great active day out. Another fantastic part is being allowed to take the dog. You must keep them a leads but that is fair enough as a lot of cliffs an things around. They even sell doggie ice cream for after! You must be in fairly good health to do the whole thing as lots of steps but I'm pretty unfit and managed it all easily. Take water and have breaks, loads of lovely picnic benches and places to stop. Incredible views and can see for miles around so very well worth all the steps. Lots of interesting flora and fauna around. The routes are brilliantly sign posted as well. There is a cafe and toilets there as well.
  • A great place for the whole family inc. The dog. Lots of walking, great sights and views and places to explore. A great day had. Will be going back.
  • This is a great day out for all the family and dogs will love it too. Lots to see and great scenery. Take a picnic and there is a cafe at entrance.
  • Can't recommend this place enough, amazing day out for families or people who like the outdoors and walking. So many things to see with the follies keeping interest throughout the day. Caves, bridges, amazing trees and grounds...the list goes on. Brilliant place.
