The Marches region is packed with things to see and do
and has a great reputation for its many top restaurants.
Here are a few of our favourite places to eat and things to do:
The Fish House - great Oyster Bar and fishmonger , tops for a light lunch whilst shopping.
The French Pantry - épicerie, café and bar, a welcome newcomer.
The Sun Inn - Flossie's spirit lives on in this fantastic parlour pub. Great beer and a chippy next door.
The Spaceguard Centre - learn about NEOs and real stargazing in the most stunning scenery.
Stockton Bury Gardens - creativity and vision shine in this gorgeous garden.
Stokesay Castle - England's best fortified medieval manor house.
Walk the Wigmore Loop - part of the famous Mortimer trail.
