Could do better

A lovely setting with a nice cafe and a selection of plants but it has the potential to offer much more especially if they could open up the old house properly.

great place for a sandwich and a relax in the lovely garden. Picked up some lovely wildlife plants and I love the wellies planters on the wall! Such a good idea, I'm stealing it.

Visited this lovely little place and was pleasantly surprised. The sun was shining and we had tea and cake in the garden. Perfect a must visit place.

Nice that this is in town centre, but it's not exactly enthralling. A few dying plants to buy, and some plaques to read, could be better

Almost like a secret garden, the SWT is close to the town centre with good parking nearby. It's full of good staff with a wealth of knowledge who will answer your every question. There are courses available as well as a good deal of other resources at hand. An enjoyable visit

With a beautiful garden to relax in and a lovely little shop to wander round, The Cut, Shropshire Wildlife Trust Visitor Centre is well worth a visit. The old Infirmary buildings are available to book for classes and meetings, as well as many events being held that are available for members of the public to take part in. Definitely one... More

I commend the Wildlife Trust for the gem on natural history they have established so close tom the city centre. Educationalist and naturalist must delighted that in such a small area it is crammed full of wonderful displays, information and natural gardens. Thanks for the opportunity to share this gem.
