Access information Take the footbridge from the station main entrance for 15-minute walk into the town. You will encounter some significant slopes and steps. Bridgnorth is split into a ‘high’ and ‘low’ town separated by a sandstone cliff!

Things to See and Do . . .
Castle Grounds The Castle Grounds, famous for the castle that Cromwell's forces in the Middle Ages didn’t quite manage to blow up, are located right in front of you as you leave the footbridge. This is a great place for a picnic on a sunny day offering stunning views across the Severn Valley. From the Castle Grounds you can take the cliff-top pathway past the ‘top station’ of the Cliff Railway ending in the centre of High Town.
Bridgnorth Cliff Railway No visit to Bridgnorth is complete without a trip on the oldest and steepest inland funicular railway in England. If you have a fear of heights don’t look down when you are in one of the cars! This is probably the easiest way to access Low Town and the riverside.

Shopping There are no large department stores here, just a good range of independent retailers and smaller shops belonging to national chains; also supermarkets. There are also a number of gift-shops. There is a market in the High Street on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
