Welcome to Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre

Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre is now open 7 days a week (starting Monday 28th July) from 10:00 – 17:00. There is plenty of free car parking, including disabled spaces. The Shropshire market town of Craven Arms is host to Grow Cook Learn at the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre and Onny Meadows Country Park. Nestled in a valley surrounded by the beautiful Shropshire Hills, this environmentally friendly centre offers a warm welcome and a host of fun activities for visitors.

Get up close and personal to Shropshire’s larger than life mammoth and step back into the Iron Age. Take a balloon ride over the Shropshire Hills – you can see all the best bits and get the finest views without leaving the ground or climbing a single hill! Set in a unique grass roofed building, the Discovery Centre has a popular café serving local food and drink – eat in, eat out or take-away! (perfect for a picnic), and an excellent selection of gifts in our shop.

Just outside there’s the 30 acre Onny Meadow, well signposted for gentle strolls along riverside paths, through wild flowers and woodland. Well behaved dogs are welcome so everyone can stretch their legs.
