For a true blast from the past experience our guest love visiting the Blists Hill Victorian Town, which is only 6 miles away. Back in a time when steam was king, see experience what life was like more than 100 years ago at the unique and fascinating open-air museum. Play and old fashioned game at the fair, enjoy a treat, and find out what passed for medicine back in the day! It is the closest you'll get to a time machine.
We are also close to the first ever cast-iron bridge, so history buffs will be in their element here! Dating back to 1779, the bridge crosses the River Severn. Visit the historic tollhouse and marvel at the strength and delicate beauty of this bright red bridge, before crossing it on foot. Join the elite few that can say they've been there done that!
Fun filled days are a plenty here in Telford as we are less than a 10 minute drive from the magical world of Wonderland. This is the place where Nursery Rhymes and Fairytales come to life. Our guests particularly love their seasonal themed events that transform the park to somewhere new each time they visit, with the same favourite rides for the kids to enjoy!
A little bit further away is the Hoo Zoo and Dinosaur World, a small family run zoo that understands the importance of conservation. We love hearing about all the animals that our younger visitors see on their days out, and all about how big the dinosaurs were! Learn all about our prehistoric ancestors, the animals we share the planet with and how we can help the environment. Also, for the die hard animal lovers - their zoo keeper experiences are the best thing ever (we speak from experience)!
And finally, can you say you've been to Telford if you haven't visited the Royal Air Force Museum? An award-winning day out for all, wonder at the world’s oldest Spitfire in person in addition to several other classic aircrafts in the War in the Air Hangar. Or learn all about the Cold War through immersive story spots, and thrilling displays of aircrafts, iconic cars, models, tanks and even life-sized Russian dolls. And did we mention it's free to visit? It's so good that most of the staff at our Telford M54 hotel have been there!
