Attractions and Places to Visit in Shrewsbury
Shropshire is one of the least crowded and most peaceful areas of England. Now one of the few remaining rural idylls, it has a long history of wild border conflicts which have left a legacy of atmospheric hillforts, earthworks and castles.
Shrewsbury is one of the finest Tudor towns in England, and to the east - in the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge - the ten museums of the Ironbridge Gorge celebrate the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution.
Shrewsbury is full of finds to be discovered during your visit – a blockbuster in a Tudor cinema, a sell-out Folk Festival and the world’s oldest Flower Show. By foot or by boat, the River Severn is a must, as is the café culture, the castle and the churches that dominate Shrewsbury's famous skyline.
