"Did you know that the Midlands is reputed to have the longest stretch of uninterrupted independent shops in the UK? This haven of quirky shops can be found tucked away in 16th and 17th century timber-framed buildings in a place called Wyle Cop.

Set in the heart of picturesque Shrewsbury, the shopping street boasts an eclectic mix of retailers, offering everything from art and homewares to jewellery, clothes and food. You'll find curious boutiques that are completely unique.

There's an art gallery with a sculpture garden, a drinks shop specialising in non-alcoholic beverages and a children's shoe shop that rewards kids who take part in the local Parkrun. And the Shropshire town is just an hour's train ride from Birmingham."
