Walking around the town which has so many original medieval buildings.
The castle and museum, the abbey and cathedral and churches. The knowledge and enthusiasm of the local people.

Is there more to shopping in Shrewsbury than just brand-name stores?

Shrewsbury has a good variety of shops, which also include many of the major chain stores. If you venture slightly off the beaten track, there are many small shops to enjoy.

Shrewsbury like many towns, suffers as a result of large out of town, retail developments. Which take a fair amount of retail trade away.

Unfortunately, the beauty and charm of Shrewsbury. Does lead to some conflict with the amount of traffic entering the town and the ease in which you can negotiate the town.

Ideally, the best way to visit is come in by bus or train. If you want to purchase a large item that you can't carry, obviously you will need your car or arrange home delivery.

To me Shrewsbury is a ' confused ' place. It can't decide whether to rely on it's history and natural beauty or to cater for business. These two aspects are slightly at odds with each other. But the town needs both. That said Shrewsbury is a very pleasant town and unlike many towns these days. It has a soul ! Come and check it out.

We had fabulous weather in October and walking around that beautiful city felt safe, clean and interesting. The river seems to bring special tranquility all of its own.
