Centred around the Medieval Red Castle and the awe-inspiring Grotto Hill, it offers visitors hours of delight and excitement and stunning views of the Shropshire countryside and beyond. Hawkstone Follies is a historic parkland covering 100 acres. Intricate pathways, ravines, arches and bridges, the towering cliffs and follies, the hermit in his hermitage and King Arthur addressing his troops in the awesome caves combine to create a magical visit that can last around 3.5 exhilarating hours. Voted '2010 Shropshire's Best Daytime Family Attraction', its eccentric collection of follies and woodland walks offer a delightful day out and fun for all the family. Hawkstone Park is also home to a 66 bedroom Hotel, restaurants and two 18 hole golf courses. For opening dates and times for rest of the year, please call or visit the website for details.
