The staff at the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre are looking forward to welcoming visitors back from Saturday 4th July.

The Centre has new measures in place to keep all visitors and staff safe. All the staff have undertaken Covid-19 safety training to ensure they are well prepared in the best practices for opening safely.

The 30 acres of riverside meadows is a great place for social distance walks and children’s trails.

The café will be serving a limited menu which will all be available to take away, with some indoor tables too.

The Centre has been awarded We’re Good To Go by Visit England.

Centre Manager, Grant Wilson, says “We can’t wait to welcome back our visitors, but it is very much safety first at the start. The centre will look a little different, with fewer tables and chairs and limited cafe offer. We have introduced extra cleaning protocols, signage and training and we ask our visitors to heed the safety advice provided so that they can be guaranteed a safe and enjoyable visit”

Entry to the Discovery Centre and Onny Meadows is free but there is a charge for visitors to enjoy our Shropshire Hills Through Time exhibition and visit our mammoth. The Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre offers an extensive programme of family events, adult courses and a variety of activities for the whole family. The unique grass roofed building houses a replica of the famous mammoth skeleton found in Shropshire. The café serves delicious home-cooked food.
