Craven Arms is a relatively new town for Shropshire, originally being a small village called Newton on a map of 1695. The village grew when the railways came during the mid to late 19th century, making it the railway town it is today. Newton is still the name for the south-eastern part of the town, while the northern part is called Newington, which was another small village which existed prior to the town. The town took its name from the Craven Arms Hotel, situated on the junction of the A49 and B4368, Clun Road, which in turn was named after the Lords Craven, who owned nearby Stokesay Castle.

There are three main visitor attractions in the Craven Arm, which are the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre, a centre featuring exhibits about the county's geography; and Stella Mitchell's Land of Lost Content Museum, a collection of 20th century memorabilia and Stokesay Castle, a fortified manor house located just south of the town.
