The nearest significant towns to Woore are Market Drayton, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Nantwich and Crewe. The A51 and A525 roads run through the village. The only road links between Woore and the rest of Shropshire pass through adjoining counties. The village is also the farthest place in Shropshire from the centre of the county near Condover.
Today it is mostly residential with a number of small shops, centralised around the Post Office and general stores on the village square. Three public houses service the village, along with one modern red brick primary school and two churches, the smaller of Baptist denomination and the larger St. Leonard's church.
St. Leonard's church was constructed in 1832 and is of an unconventional white plaster design. Its bell tower has not been safe to regularly ring in since the late eighties, with the bells now replaced by a timed recording.
Bridgemere Garden World is to the north of Woore, just over the border in Cheshire.
