a About
Open space where you can slow the pace. Historic places with famous steps to retrace. Discover heritage and culture in Shropshire and make sure Shrewsbury’s your base.
e Shop

Endless boutiques and quirky independents. All tucked away in 'shuts and passages' (those crooked medieval alleyways that criss-cross the town centre). When you visit Shrewsbury, shopping is definitely a must do.

i Stay

Retreat to sleep in Scandi chic. Crash out in a 16th century Coaching Inn. Wake up in Prince Rupert’s bedroom. There are plenty of out-of-the-ordinary places to lay your head here. 

o Do

Shrewsbury is full of finds - a blockbuster in a Tudor cinema and the world’s oldest Flower Show. River folk and walkers, theatre on the riverbank. Darwin’s school days and famed festivals, fireworks and flowers. 

u Eat

Bread, still warm, made with flour from a watermill a few miles away. Busy restaurants and quirky bars that won’t disappoint. Cobbled streets packed with cool cafés and one-off delis. 

You Can't Copy Shrewsbury

Sparkling seasonal gifts from quirky and quaint independent shops. A rich claret in a 15th century cellar followed by a panto or show on the riverbank. A festive feast washed down with drinks in a cool cocktail bar. Christmas in Shrewsbury is certainly one-off, so let your Christmas story start here.
