The arrival of rail in Wellington in 1849 dramatically changed the town's fortunes and provided a much-needed boost to the local economy. The brewery trade was the most significantly affected, building on the various malt houses already found in the town. As it always does in England, top-notch beer attracted visitors and as a result the number of hotels and gift shops boomed, turning Wellington into a Victorian-era tourist hotspot. Beer's contribution to the town is commemorated on Charter Day in March, when Wellington elects an ale taster, along with a town crier and a market clerk. Wellington station is a charming structure, with long sweeping tracks arcing into the open-air platforms. In the 1960s, when Wellington formed part of the new town of Telford, the station took on the area's main transport duties until Telford's own station arrived in 1986. Today, Wellington hosts a number of popular independent shops including - you guessed it - a popular microbrewery.
