A Perfect Place to Visit

The unique Mythstories Museum of Myth & Fable is located in Wem. Mythstories has exhibitions and storytelling research material. It features regular storytelling events throughout the year and admission is free.

Just 3 miles from Wem lies Hawkstone Park Follies. Placed 14th in the Sunday Times `Britain's Best 50 Days Out' feature - 17 June 2007.  The Follies is a fantasyland of cliffs, crags, caves, deep woods and a series of extraordinary monuments built over 200 years ago. After years of neglect, the magical landscape was lovingly restored and reopened in 1993. English Heritage awarded Hawkstone Park Follies with Grade I certification on its Register of Historic Gardens and Parks and the Good Britain Guide voted it ‘Family Attraction of the Year 2004’.

Highlights include Grotto Hill, where you can explore a pitch-dark labyrinth of ancient mines cut into the cliff; the Swiss Bridge, a rustic wooden structure perched over an unnervingly deep chasm; the Cleft, a path winding between two cliffs which narrows into a dark, creepy tunnel; and the Monument, a 100ft high column which can be climbed to enjoy panoramic views of up to 13 counties!
