Annual visitor figures have increased at Q2 18/19 195,270 compared to Q2 17/18 155,725.

There has been an increase in the number of visitors to visitor attractions in Shropshire, which include Acton Scott, Ludlow Resource Centre and Much Wenlock museum.  The increase is mainly attributed to increased visitors to Shrewsbury Museum. This increase can be attributed to several factors Improved counting to make  the recording visitor numbers more accurate, increased footfall to the information centre by people looking for things to do and there has also been an increased footfall for the purchase of tickets for festivals/events in the county. The introduction of a people counter at the Ludlow Museum and Resource Centre has also revealed a higher number of visitors.
