Often referred to as "The Jewel of The Severn" Bridgnorth occupies one of the most spectacular inland town settings in England. In 1642 King Charles I described the view from Castle Walk as "the finest in my domain".

The town has two main areas: 'High Town' includes the main shopping street and is perched dramatically on top of one hundred foot sandstone cliffs. The lower part is known as "Low Town" and straddles the River Severn. The two are linked by a series of historic winding steps and a unique cliff railway. The northern terminus of the Severn Valley railway is also located in the town.
