The jewel in Shropshire’s crown, Shrewsbury is packed with fascinating history. Much of the town consists of 15th and 16th century timber framed buildings and its incredible architecture includes the red sandstone Abbey, founded in 1083, a Norman Castle and St Mary’s Church, dating from 960AD which boasts one of the tallest spires in England.Shrewsbury's history goes much further back than Tudor times, however, and can be witnessed in the incredible architecture of the red sandstone abbey (founded in 1083), the Norman castle and St Mary's Church, dating from 960AD and boasting one of the tallest spires in England.
While Shrewsbury's history is one of its key attractions, there are plenty of contemporary ways to enjoy the town. Wyle Cop, The Parade Centre and the waterfront area all provide excellent opportunities for shopping and relaxing with many unique, independent shops, bars and restaurants.
Further afield and well worth a visit is the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site; Hawkstone Historic Park and Follies - a wonderland of caves, cliffs, crags and woodland; Wroxeter Roman City (the remains of Britain's fourth largest Roman settlement), and the Severn Valley Steam Railway. For those who enjoy getting outdoors, the gorgeous rolling countryside and hills of Shropshire stretch as far as the eye can see in every direction, making Shrewsbury the ideal base for a walking holiday.
