Shrewsbury is steeped in history and offers excellent sightseeing, museums, shopping facilities, nightlife and walking.
Shrewsbury is the birthplace of Charles Darwin and is located close to Cromwell’s. He probably walked past our front door many times whilst in the town. The Brother Cadfael books by Ellis Peters are based on the real setting of the town’s Abbey which was founded in 1083 as a Benedictine monastery and is just down the hill and over the English Bridge from Cromwell’s.
A Christmas Carol, staring George C Scott, was filmed in the town.
The new Theatre Severn is a short walk away.

Along with Cromwell’s, there are over 600 listed buildings in Shrewsbury including the Norman Abbey and the town’s medieval castle.
Shrewsbury has several museums including Rowley’s House - Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery, Shrewsbury Castle and Regimental Museum and Coleham Pumping Station Museum. Churches of historic interest include Shrewsbury Abbey, St Chad’s and St. Mary’s.
Shrewsbury is a great shopping town. With the recognised chain stores there are also a great deal of independent, original and above all interesting shops hidden in the various passageways of Shrewsbury. Also look out for the many antique shops.
Pick a direction - any direction - and start walking. Take in the view and marvel at the majestic River Severn. For the Severn is Shrewsbury’s gem. You can take a river tour on The Shrewsbury River Boat called the Sabrina. Along its banks are gardens, meadows and a beautiful 29-acre parkland known as The Quarry.
The Quarry is a perfect place to relax. It has been the town’s most important site for recreation since the 16th century and is now the home to the World famous Shrewsbury Flower Show which takes place here every August. At the centre of The Quarry is The Dingle, a formal floral masterpiece created by World-renowned Percy Thrower - during his 28 years as Park Superintendent.
Shrewsbury has many events throughout the year, May sees the annual regatta take place along The River Severn and the Shrewsbury summer season events are from June to September. In October and November why not try a guided ghost tour of the Town.
Shrewsbury is an ideal base to explore the county. With such an extraordinary variety of countryside, Shropshire is often described as being five counties in one. Church Stretton, known as ‘Little Switzerland’, is excellent walking country. There is also the trail of novelist Mary Webb whose trail you can follow and don’t forget the trail of the real King Arthur.

Nearby is the partially excavated site Wroxeter Roman City, once the 4th largest city in Britain. Locally produced wine is available from the adjacent Wroxter Roman vineyard.
The Regency gem of Attingham Park is within a short drive. This magnificent National Trust property has fine gardens and regular open-air concerts.
Hawkstone Park and Follies has spectacular views and scenery as well as grottos, ravines and caves to explore.
Shropshire has famous ruins, monuments, and stately homes, all of which can be easily accessed from Shrewsbury. A visit to the World Heritage Site of the Ironbridge Gorge should not be missed. Birthplace of the industrial revolution, it is home to ten interactive and interesting museums, including the Victorian town of Blists Hill.
Shropshire also offers a number of golf courses with Hawkstone Park and Condover being just a couple of nearby courses.
