Shrewsbury is original! Set amidst glorious countryside near to the Welsh Borders, it is one of England’s finest medieval market towns.
The town centre is packed with timber-framed black & white buildings, steep narrow streets and alleyways.
It has over 600 listed buildings including the Castle, now a regimental museum and the world-famous Shrewsbury Abbey, home of the fictional Brother Cadfael.
The town market has been voted one of Britain’s favourites and has traditional stalls, cafes and restaurants and occasional late night openings.
Naturalist, Charles Darwin was born and educated in Shrewsbury and all around you will find reminders of his association with the town.
The River Severn forms a loop around the town centre offering gentle riverside walks or you can enjoy a river trip.
Next to the river you can relax in the beautiful Quarry Park, location for the annual Shrewsbury Flower Show, the Food Festival and Oktoberfest. Shrewsbury is often referred to to as the Town of Flowers.
