The real beauty of a trip to Shrewsbury (aside from the historical buildings and stunning setting) is its adaptability. You can do as much, or as little, as you want.
So by all means enjoy our multitude of museums, churches, shops, restaurants and festivals... but if you fancy a lazy day by the river, they’ll still all be there tomorrow.
Here are a just few ideas to get you started:
If you’re feeling cultural, follow the river bend and catch a performance at Theatre Severn, explore one of Shrewsbury’s many independent art galleries, visit Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery or Shrewsbury Castle.
Visit the Shrewsbury churches that led A.E. Housman to wax lyrical about Shrewsbury’s ‘steepled crest’: St. Mary's, St. Alkmund's, St. Chad's and Shrewsbury Cathedral.
Take a guided walking tour around the town, and discover ancient street layouts of shuts and passageways, picturesque cobbled alleys and squares.
Enjoy a stroll along the river through our 29 acre Quarry Park & Dingle garden (it’s free to enter), or take a cruise aboard Sabrina Boat.
