Telford in general Reviews
Newest Review: ... the place to be - if not, then Shrewsbury is on 20 mins by car down the road, where the restaurant scene is totally different! So, living in Telford gives you the best of both worlds - you can get all the run of the mill shops you are used to - Debenhams, B&Q, Primark, Marks & Spencer, etc, but if you fancy something different, then Ironbridge and Shrewsbury are only down the road. Lots of charity shops in Wellington and Oakengates too, if that is your scene! The town centre is the main indoor shopping mall, flanked by a few well stocked retail parks. The town centre is going to change a lot in the next few years though, with ... more

I have been living in Telford since 1997, having moved to England from Cananda. Although Telford does lack culture, it makes up for it in having everything else you need in shops and services. You won't get anything much in restaurants apart from the chain ones, but if that suits you then Telford is the place to be - if not, then Shrewsbury is on 20 mins by car down the road, where the restaurant scene is totally different!

I just decided to see whether anyone had reviewed my home town of Telford and was amazed (and a bit sad) to find that the answer was yes - but neither was particularly positive, so I thought I should review it myself and maybe even up the rating. I won't lie to you, Telford has its problems, but I think they are ones which any town across the UK can identify with to a certain extent, I am sure there are worse places to live - and it does have some good points. Lets look at the accusations which have been levelled at it first. 1) Nothing to do - Telford is a 'new town' (it was 'built' in the 1960's but what they mean by this is that a number of ...

Telford, like many places in England, is slowly becoming one of the biggest dumps around. Only ten years ago I remember moving here with my parents because it was so nice. So peaceful. I used to walk to nursery with mom and pass the fields with horses and sheep. There was a bank over the road from me that I would hide in and build little dens. Now let me tell you what I see. I now see the fields whilst I’m on the bus (I’m getting too old to walk!) and they are no longer full of wildlife. In fact, there's a whole new village on their which seems to have been magically built in one and a half years! Everywhere I look there is smoke because Telford . Read the complete review

Telford is a New Town in Shropshire. It's a bit of a strange place in that unlike most other new towns which are closely built, Telford is very spread out and stretches for miles. It basically comprises of some old villages tied together by motorways, and lots of new housing estates added in-between. So it has a variety of housing types and tenures. Housing in Telford is much cheaper that elsewhere- for example the same New Build estate house would cost around 30,000 less than in nearby Shrewsbury- perhaps the land is cheaper, I'm not sure exactly why but there is a big difference. You could buy a 3 bedroomed house for 40K, if you weren't too fussy ... Read the complete review
