Welcome to Shrewsbury


Shrewsbury is a place of evolution. The castle, churches and medieval buildings that dominate Shrewsbury's famous skyline are as popular as the café culture, cocktail bars, events and festivals.

Walk through the town centre to see the very old alongside the very new and meet the people that bring the place to life. You can sail where Charles Darwin once fished for newts, watch a film in a Tudor market hall and in the summer see three million blooms fill Quarry Park for the world’s oldest Flower Show.

When you visit Shrewsbury, shopping should definitely be on your list of things to do. Explore the crooked medieval alleyways that criss-cross the town centre to find innovative independents outnumbering the chains.

With riverside pubs and restaurants, cool cafés and bars, Shrewsbury has an ever changing food and drink scene catering to all tastes.

If you’re planning a short break there are plenty of one-off places to stay. Why not retreat to sleep in Scandi chic or crash out in a 16th-century coaching inn. Find these and a wide range of accommodation in Shrewsbury here.
