Telford — 29 nights

Telford is a large new town in the borough of Telford and Wrekin and ceremonial county of Shropshire, England, about 13mi east of Shrewsbury, and 30mi north west of Birmingham. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Telford: Shrewsbury (Hawkstone Park Follies, Stand-Up Paddleboarding, &more), Hodnet Hall Gardens (in Market Drayton) and Siam Harmony Holistic & Thai Integrated Therapy (in Burlton). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Blists Hill Victorian Town, examine the collection at Coalbrookdale Museum of Iron, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Exotic Zoo, and meet the residents at Hoo Zoo and Dinosaur World.

To find where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Telford road trip planning website.

Manchester to Telford is an approximately 2-hour car ride. You can also take a train; or do a combination of train and bus. In September in Telford, expect temperatures between 20°C during the day and 9°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Thu) early enough to drive back home.

Considered one of England's most unspoiled counties, Shropshire is both easy to reach from almost anywhere in the country and far enough from the big urban centers to have stayed relatively unchanged over the last few decades. A laid-back atmosphere pervades local life, attracting visitors eager to escape the overcrowded tourist sites of the more frequented regions. The locals take pride in their modern food culture, which is centered around trendy restaurants serving dishes prepared with some of the finest organic ingredients available in the country. Renowned for its local ales, the county leads the way in the home-brew revival, with a multitude of small traditional pubs, inns, and microbreweries.
