I had seen people on the cliffs during a golf holiday 4 years ago, and added it to my virtual bucket list. It's amazing! We spent a hard work 2+ hours walking many of the trails - and the stairs! - but sadly ran out...More

We visited for the Halloween trail and even though it was only a couple of quid it only consisted of a few clues and a small packet of sweets at the end. The walks are striking and there are some beautiful views but it is...More

Around a 3 hour walk through the park to see everything. Beautiful park with interesting follies to see and challenges to be had, a real adventure. Some challenging routes, but it is always possible to avoid any heights and challenging bits with a different route....More

Taking advantage of the impressive sandstone cliffs that rise above the surrounding Shropshire plain, the...More

What an amazing way to spend a summers day! This place is ace and it's great value for money, considering you can spend an entire day there if you so wish. The views are amazing, the walk is fun and the caves are cool! It's...More

I visit Hawkstone around once every three years. Every time I go, I find the plan they give you very poor and confusing as it does not show up all the paths. Would be better if they numbered the attractions in sequence so you could...More

There is really nothing to dislike about Hawkstone Follies. Its a reasonably priced attraction, just £8.25 admission for adults, with concessions and family tickets available too. Open all week during the summer months and at weekends only during autumn and spring (so check opening times!)...More

sorry, bit late. There's a Cafe near the entrance, but think it may refuse entry to dogs. We didn't take ours. Don't think there are many covered areas.
