Shrewsbury

 
 

Set amidst glorious countryside near the Welsh Borders, Shrewsbury is one of England's finest medieval market towns.

The town centre is packed with timber-framed black & white buildings and boasts over 660 listed buildings including the Castle and the world-famous Shrewsbury Abbey. Part of the town's medieval street plan still exists today featuring Shrewsbury's Shuts and Passages - a unique maze of narrow alleys and cobbled streets which criss-cross the town centre.

Shrewsbury is fortunate to have its own beautiful, 23-acre parkland known as The Quarry. A tree-lined towpath follows the river through the park making the Quarry a perfect place to relax, enjoy walks, picnic, or to let off steam. At its centre lies the Dingle, a formal floral masterpiece created by world-renowned gardener Percy Thrower.

Charles Darwin, renowned for his theory of evolution, is Shrewsbury’s famous son. Born and educated in the town, Shrewsbury was the inspiration and influence for Darwin. To follow in the footsteps of the young Darwin, follow the new Darwin town trail around the town and see first hand the places associated with the evolutionary thinker.
