Oi Oi! Guess who's actually blogging on time for 3 posts in a row! Madness. Right, so if you aren't already aware from last weeks posts, first of all why not? Only joking, a few weeks ago I went on Holiday to the gorgeous county of Shropshire and so I'm dedicating the next few blog posts to each day I was away. Today's post is for day three of our trip in the little town of Bridgenorth. According to my dad I absolutely adored going to Bridgenorth when i was a toddler so obviously we had to go and see it. Just like Shrewsbury it was absolutely adorable, and the veiws were insane.
As we skipped breakfast we decided to find somewhere to eat and found the cutest tearoom down a windy lane. Now it was purple, which is my everything, so I was already onboard but when we went inside ... Holy Crap. It. Was. SO cute I can't even tell you. Unfortunately there was only one table by the window which a lovely old couple had taken up so we perched in the corner. I opted for scrambled egg on a toasted bagel which I've never had before and oh my god, loved it. We didn't stay long after we finished as a family came in with a teeny tiny baby which sadly did not seem to like the tearoom as much as I did and made his opinion quite clear by screaming. After breakfast we took decided to take the Tram. Bridgnorth Tram I think is the steepest Tram in the country and boy can I see why, Matt got quite dizzy when he looked out the window. Somehow we managed to get it all to ourselves on the way down and even though it only lasts about a minute, it was still lovely. Lower Bridgnorth was just as cute as Higher, with an adorable Ice cream shop just round the corner from the Tram station. The River Severn runs through the middle and everything was so colourful and well kept. We ended up walking all round it trying to find a toilet and eventually found a Portaloo in a park, as well as a furry friend sunbathing. Once we made it back up to the top we found Giovanni's Ice cream parlour where I had the nicest salted caramel icecream I've ever had. Even though the weather was sunny, it was still a bit glum but I was determined to have Ice cream at least once on my holiday.
Around Lunch time we left Bridgnorth to go and visit the village of Much Wenlock, to see it's priory. The priory, even though it was in ruin was still stunning to look at, and just from the few bits that were left you could see the skill that went in to it. I can't imagine how wonderful it would have looked had it still been standing. By about 4 we were both getting hungry so we took a quick stroll into Much Wenlock before heading back for dinner. I've always had a soft spot for old villages but this one now has a place in my heart for ever, I've never seen anything so cute. Basically all of Shropshire is adorable and you should go there immediately.
Would any of you go on the Tram, or our heights not your cup of tea?
