'A Christmas Carol€™ guided walks in Shrewsbury

 in Shrewsbury Fans of the film of ‘A Christmas Carol’, filmed on location in Shrewsbury 26 years ago, are being invited to join one of two special guided walks on Saturday 18 December.

The walks will take people through all of the areas in the town centre where filming took place – from the grand frontage of The Parade to the atmospheric shuts and passageways of the town centre.

The walks will start at 11am and 2pm, and depart from the Shrewsbury Visitor Information Centre at Rowley’s House in Barker Street. Each walk lasts for about 90 minutes.

Tickets are £4 for adults and £2.50 for children (16 and under).

For tickets visit the Shrewsbury Visitor Information Centre, Rowley’s House or telephone 01743 281200 to book over the phone.  The VIC is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm.

Councillor Mike Owen, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for economy and waste, said: “A Christmas Carol really helped to put Shrewsbury on the map when it was made back in 1984 and continues to help promote the town 26 years later. I hope people will join one of these walks to find out more about the locations where filming took place.”

These tours were very popular last year, so advance booking is essential.
