Historic market town in a loop of the River Severn
4 miles (less if cutting out the riverside loop)
|Time||2 hours plus site seeing|
Shrewsbury is a pretty town with medieval streets and 600+ preserved historical buildings. It has a lovely location set in a loop of the River Severn.
There is an Abbey, several churches, a riverside walk, a small castle, a town museum/art gallery, and an old town with pedestrian street with many historical buildings
The town's hayday was in the middle ages with the wool trade - that the industrial revolution passed it by spared it during WW2 and 60's/70's redevelopments.
There are no spectacular sights as such, just its location and the riverside walk, and the maze of medieval streets lined with historic buildings

Shrewsbury is a main station with direct trains from London, Manchester, Birmingham etc. Shrewsbury Castle is next to the station.
By car, several car parks in the centre, or park outside the town for free, and cross one of the pedestrian bridges into the centre - try around SY37JN or SY37AJ
After the walk, we would love to get your feedback
