For those of us of a certain age camping was forever etched into the memory courtesy of the Carry On film franchise and while we can’t offer the chance to meet Sid James, Kenneth Williams or Hattie Jaques, we do provide excellent facilities - so why not Carry On Camping at the showground!
Camping is a growing trend right now with people looking for a cheaper short break or holiday alternative as the economic squeeze continues to tighten - and it is our idyllic West Mid Showground that is the chosen option for an increasing number of visitors looking for somewhere special to pitch their tent or park up their camper.
What’s not to like?
It really isn’t surprising. We have the facilities, acres of space and the ideal location - just a few minutes walk from Shrewsbury’s bustling town centre while also offering a tranquil setting where you can enjoy a well-deserved rest.
Shrewsbury is a major tourist attraction with people flocking to visit its many and diverse independent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants while revelling in the town’s historic surroundings.
There really is so much to see and do and is well worth the visit - so much, in fact, that you will need more than one day to take in all the sights of the town and surrounding areas. Which is why the West Mid Showground is the ideal place to base yourself during your visit.
It’s all here
We are situated on the banks of the River Severn and all of those shopping opportunities and must-see tourist attractions are less than a 15-minute walk from the showground. You can pitch your tent on our extensive area of green space and can even pick your spot when you turn up!
The showground has on-site wash, shower and toilet facilities along with electric hook-up connections. Dogs are welcome, groups of all sizes can be accommodated and if you are a lover of water, water sporting activities can be arranged on the nearby Severn.
So whether you are seeking a night out under the stars or a longer option, the showground is the best alternative to meet your camping needs. To book your camping spot at the showground visit Pitchup by clicking here.
