Hawkstone Follies

Just 18 minutes by car from Meeson Hall, you’ll discover a Shropshire treasure. Built by Henry de Audley in 1227, Hawkstone Park has hidden caves, crags and cliffs to explore, along with stunning monuments that have been restored back to their glory days after 200 years.


There are many walking routes to choose from, varying from one hour to three hours long, across 100 acres grounds. You’ll see the amazing scenery and architecture from years gone by.

Discover the most spectacular historic architecture that Shropshire has to offer with a woodland walk. You’ll explore The White Tower, The Monument (which has a remarkable viewpoint), and across the Swiss Bridge, you’ll find The Grotto via The Cleft.

However, if you fancy exploring the man-made caves, you’ll pass Reynard’s Banqueting House, The Retreat, and through the Gingerbread Hall to the Gothic Arch.

There are many routes to discover, with breathtaking views of Shropshire. Sound tiring? You can visit the tearoom to relax afterwards.


There’s always something going on at Hawkstone Park, whether it’s exploring the follies on two wheels or going to Follies Fest. Fancy relaxing whilst discovering Shropshire? Book a warden safari and learn the history of the Follies. There’s plenty going on, so be sure to check their website before you go.
