Summer in Shrewsbury

Steve Jetley/Destination Shrewsbury

Explore Shrewsbury’s secret 'shuts and passages' and cobbled streets, filled with original and one-off independent restaurants and shops.

The mixture of old with new is something that Shrewsbury embraces, with 660 listed buildings; you can watch a blockbuster in a building that was built in 1596!

When you’ve finished exploring the town, head over to Quarry Park – 29 acres of parkland used for festivals, fireworks, flowers, picnics, football, Frisbee and catching up with friends!
