Lots of shopping available, search the hidden passages. lots of historical sights to visit, soooo many places to eat your spoilt for choice. We stayed at the Lion Hotel which was lovely and very central to everything. Please remember Shrewsbury can be a bit hilly so be prepared.

Went there for a weekend with an historical association. Plenty of historical things to see. Got lots of character. The railway station is just off the town centre. The pubs are proper pubs with decent beer. Went for a curry at a place called, "The Curry House". Nice food and good service.
