Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The climb from the south side is steep but from the car park not too bad and the view from the top makes the climb worthwhile.

Tough walk up, if travelling up the south end, would recommend taking it slow. Very much worth it however, as the views are remarkable. Also lots of wildlife we saw 5 dear run across us when heading a field by the Wrekin.

This was the first time I had climbed the wrekin with my family and the first time since I was young. I did a bit of research and found out the Car park is just off the M54 at junction 7. When you park up there is a machine but it wants you to pay online. We used the machine and paid £4 for 12 hours as we didn’t know how long it would take. You could park in the road just before and I believe that would be free but we didn’t realise. Having parked, we set off. It is quite steep at times and thankfully it was dry as it was still a little slippy especially for young children. The cafe half way up has closed. It would of been great to stop there on the way up or down for a drink. It took about 90 minutes for us to reach the top with us stopping a few times and the views were spectacular. There was a nice sundial at the top showing you in which direction different places were. I do feel this area should be celebrated much more than it is. There was some information about it being used in Roman and Saxon times as a village community but that was it. Overall I would definitely go again but probably not in the winter with little ones.

Litter everywhere. Can hear the motorway. Ruined by Brummies and locals who have no respect for nature.

You climb up the Wrekin in the tracks of millions before to get a view of 50 miles on a good day . If you are not interested in views drive on

Always loved the name of this hill even though I’m not local it’s a parliamentary constituency name that sticks in the mind! So when I was in the area, I decided to climb it. Not the biggest hill I’ve climbed but quite challenging all the same, would recommend sticks even though I didn’t see anybody using them, probably because it’s ‘only’ a climb of 800ft or so. Sticks could be useful especially on descent as the gradient is quite steep & almost constant.

Spent my whole life walking, riding and photographing the Wrekin. Best hill in Shropshire. Plus, you know you're nearly home when you see the Wrekin.

Quite a walk to the top, however, I made it and boy, it was worth it! Breath-taking views from every side. Had a lovely picnic at the top.
