The original Shrewsbury Station was built in 1848. The station was extended between 1899 and 1903 by the construction of a new floor underneath the original station building requiring large buttresses to support it. The building style was imitation Tudor, complete with carvings of Tudor style heads around the window frames. This was done to complement the Tudor building of Shrewsbury School (now Shrewsbury Library) almost directly opposite. The station's platforms also extend over the River Severn. It was declared a grade 2 listed building in 1969.
Opposite platform 7 is a large concrete wall that divides the rest of the station from what could be considered to be platform 8. This platform does not see any use and was built to allow the discrete transportation of prisoners from the (now closed) Dana Prison opposite.
