Beautiful pictures. I recommend Shropshire to anyone I know going to England.

No, but Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool airports are all just over 1 hour by car or train from Shrewsbury.

There is a castle but it's nowhere near as impressive or important as Windsor, it's probably about the 100th best castle in Britain!

Cities are old (if you like that) but the landscape is beautiful. But i think more people would go to Wales instead of Shropshire..
