Welcome to Shrewsbury. For all the beauty of one of England’s finest medieval towns, it’s the flowers you may notice first – they are everywhere. Or perhaps you will be distracted by the colourful events taking place throughout the year or Shrewsbury's picturesque cobbled alleys and squares.
Either way you will soon realise there’s more to Shrewsbury than black & white buildings. Be astounded by the exceptional number of interesting, independent shops that makes Shrewsbury’s shopping so special. Or distract yourself with all the restaurants and eateries, Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery, numerous churches and spires, Shrewsbury Abbey or Shrewsbury Castle.
Don’t forget to wander down to the Quarry Park, and simply watch the world go by while enjoying a drink by the river, or relax on a river boat trip from Victoria Quay.
Shrewsbury's most famous son, Charles Darwin (born in Shrewsbury) would still recognise his home town, renowned to be one of England’s most splendid heritage towns with over 600 listed buildings and thats quite a list.
Stay awhile. Shrewsbury is the county town of Shropshire and the perfect place from which to explore Ludlow and two World Heritage Sites; the museums and historic sites of Ironbridge Gorge and the awe inspiring Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.
Shrewsbury is full of friendly and helpful accommodation businesses, offering delightful B&Bs, interesting and unusual hotels and self-catering properties for tourists. So if you are looking for a comfy bed and a warm welcome do give them a call - they would love to hear from you.
