Travelling around Oswestry
Oswestry is a bustling market town in the Midlands, located on the border between Shropshire and Wales. It is this location – sandwiched between the rolling fields of the English countryside and the more rugged landscape of Wales – which has driven the development of Oswestry over the centuries.
Traders from both sides of the border have always flocked to the town to deal in their goods, and it is this commercial focus which still gives Oswestry a vibrant, cosmopolitan feel. This is particularly true on market days when the streets are packed with traders from far and wide.
The town of Oswestry sits close to the A5, making it easy to travel to locations across Wales and Shropshire, and Arriva buses provide services to Ellesmere, Shrewsbury, Wrexham and other locations.
