You get a very good view over a large area from the top of the Wrekin. It is an iconic local landmark, but it is just a hill. not really much more you can say about it. It is a decent walk on a nice day.

The Wrekin in a good way of doing exercise with the added bonus of lovely scenic views. It is good for all levels of fitness. Good for taking your dog for a walk too. There is a half way house but it's a shame it is not open to the public. You would need a good pair of walking shoes... More

We are local so sometimes walk from home in Lawley which is a lovely walk. There was an Iron Age hill fort on the hill and there is info there to explain. It is usually quiet busy on the top at weekends and it makes for a great walk on Christmas morning especially if there's snow.

I regularly walk up the Wrekin with my kids, for exercise and for the incredible view. It's a fairly easy walk that can be done in half an hour if done briskly, more like an hour for a leisurely amble. The Wrekin itself used to be a fortified village and although there are no remains to be seen you can... More

I have lived in Shropshire most of my life and have been up the Wrekin many times on a clear day the view will take your breath away. I recommend you give it a go have a picnic at the top and take in the views

Get your pulse going, its a good climb young or old like me, the reward is the spectacular view when you reach the top. You've got 360 deg. Views as far as the eye can see and its free. PS take a pair of binoculars and some water with you.

I used to live in Telford when I was a child, and cant ever remember coming up the Wrekin, so when I last visited my friend , I told her I wanted to go. I had no idea what a good workout it is, quite steep, and I was out of breath trying to walk up it quick, but it... More

Gentle climb to the top of The Wrekin. Great for a bit of exercise and fresh air, either on my own or dragging my children up!! Free parking at the bottom so a cheap afternoon out with a picnic.

I have lived by or near to the Wrekin for 30years and i have yet to completely explore all it has to offer. So close to Telford and Wellington, but makes you feel you are in the heart of the country. It doesn't yet have the travel links to make the most of it so a lot of people pass... More

Fantastic place for a good walk and then a picnic at the summit. Amazing views if you make it. Don't forget to pass through the needles eye.
