What to do in Wellington, Telford

Here in the small market town of Wellington, Shropshire we are blessed with an absolute handful of things to do and places to see. If you’re down here for an eye test or a day trip to the town centre, we’ve compiled a list of what to do when in Wellington.

Telford Town Park

In 2015, Telford Town Park was voted UK’s Best Park! If you are fortunate to catch us on a sunny day, Town Park is the perfect place for a picnic or a day of fun with the kids. On top of that, Telford Town Park also has a mini golf course, a ropes course, picturesque gardens, play areas and scenic bike routes.

Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom

If you have the kids with you, we also recommend checking out Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom which has of course your usual farm animals but even boasts meerkats and lemurs!

Apley Woods

Apley Woods, just outside of Wellington into Apley, is the best place for a leisurely walk and there is also Apley Castle which was built in 1270 – pretty old!

Wellington Town Centre

Since we are situated in Wellington Town Centre, if you are stopping by the practice for an eye test, we highly recommend taking the time to look around! Wellington is full of independent shops, cafes and restaurants full of history and character. If you’re in Wellington for any other reason, be sure to stop by John Biddle Opticians to say hello!
