Shrewsbury

UK travel information

Like many of England’s market towns Shrewsbury, the county town of Shropshire, retains much of its charm through the preservation of architecture that has been part of the development of this small and very charming town. Among the town are over 650 listed buildings, some of them superb examples of Tudor timber framed houses, while the modern shopping arcades are well regarded and excellent to visit.

Located on the mighty River Severn Shrewsbury was a prime location for a settlement and is believed to have been inhabited for well over 1000 years, and nearby attractions such as Shrewsbury Castle bear testament to the lengthy history of the town.
