British Ironwork Centre

You will meet your guide here and there will be chance to get a cup of coffee before your visit. The British Ironwork Centre is simply one of a kind. The Centre is the  birthplace of the famous ‘Spoon Gorilla’ and ‘Knife Angel’ – the UK’s national monument against knife crime. The Centre is long dedicated to, and passionate about the preservation and creation of quality craft and metal work in all its many forms. This wonderfully diverse Centre has a stunning and varied collection of metal work. Here you will find beautifully decorative items both large and small for the home and garden. The indoor emporia allow you to escape into a treasure trove of must-have trinkets and interior adornments, whilst the grounds are abundant with architectural structures and eye-catching sculptures.

Lunch at Percy Thrower’s

Enjoy a delicious two-course lunch with tea and coffee at this garden centre, dedicated to local celebrity gardener Percy Thrower.


With a population of around 100,000, Shrewsbury is the county town for Shropshire. The town centre is peppered with timber-framed black & white buildings, steep narrow streets and alleyways. In fact it boasts over 600 listed buildings including the Castle, now a regimental museum and the world-famous Shrewsbury Abbey, home of the fictional Brother Cadfael.
Charles Darwin was born and educated in Shrewsbury and all around you will find reminders of his association with the town. Enjoy time to stroll around at your leisure, admiring the quaint medieval streets. The River Severn forms a loop around the town centre offering gentle riverside walks. Next to the river you can relax in the beautiful Quarry Park, location for the annual Shrewsbury Flower Show.
