Trains to Shrewsbury

The picturesque town of Shrewsbury lies within a giant loop of the River Severn. Shrewsbury’s medieval skyline is dominated by majestic spires, castles and abbeys that reflect the city’s Tudor past. Soak up the culture of the city with a visit to the eleventh-century Shrewsbury Castle, or explore the past and present history of Shropshire with a visit to Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery.

The annual Shrewsbury Folk Festival (23 – 26 August 2019) is always a popular event and attracts some of the biggest names in folk and world music. There are plenty of shops to explore in Shrewsbury. The city boasts being one of the few destinations where independent shops still outnumber high street chains. Visitors can easily spend an afternoon walking down the cobbled streets which are lined with boutique stores, before enjoying Shrewsbury’s many traditional pubs and restaurants by night.
