Tell the Tale of Telford Town
Telford, named after Thomas Telford the renowned civil engineer, Telford’s gleaming buildings and hi tech businesses mark it out as a town for the future. One of the UK’s fastest growing and most successful new towns – it contrasts with its historic neighbour Ironbridge the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution.
At Telford’s heart, surrounded by tall glossy buildings, is the biggest and best shopping centre in all of Shopaholic Shropshire. Open seven days a week, with parking for over 4000 cars all geared up for a family day out.
Telford is geared for children – the 450 acre Telford Town Park includes Wonderland where nursery rhymes and fairy stories come to life. There’s Telford Ski Centre and nearby is Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom – sheep steeplechase, a maze and tractor grand prix. The Telford Steam Railway has steam and diesel rides and a model railway.
