Bridgnorth is a picturesque market town once one of the busiest river ports in Europe. The River Severn divides the town into High Town and Low Town, both are linked by seven sets of ancient donkey steps or you can take the Victorian funicular, the Bridgnorth Cliff Railway.
There is a bustling market on Saturday mornings in High Town where you can also find many independent shops as well as some chain stores.
History abounds in Bridgnorth. Thomas Telford's church of St Mary Magdalene sits grandly next door, while the timber-framed Town Hall set on high brick piers, interrupts the traffic flow in the High Street. The redundant but revered St Leonard's Church set in its own cathedral-like close provides calm away from the hustle and bustle of the town.
The medieval Northgate, which houses the Northgate Museum stands guard at one end of the High Street whilst the Italianate splendour of the New Market Buildings stand at the other.
