A Taste Of Telford's History
Although Telford was only built in the 1960s, the market towns and farms which make up the town date back much further, and the area has a rich history, with Ironbridge World Heritage Site and the Bronze Age fort at The Wrekin all nearby. Staying at The Old Orleton Inn, a 17th century coaching inn just six miles from Telford Town Park and Shopping Centre, is a great way to soak up some of the region's history. You’ll also find that local cuisine is a speciality in the restaurant here. The inn's staff are on hand to offer assistance organising tours or booking tickets to local attractions.

Head for the golf course, hire a tandem bike and take a romantic bike ride for two or explore the 35 miles of traffic-free cycle paths (many of which follow old railway lines) with the whole family. On the outskirts of town, you'll find hiking paths suited to all levels of walkers, or you could always burn off some calories strolling around Telford Town Park, before heading back to your hotel or guesthouse for dinner.
