Shrewsbury is a lovely town. We went to the Lets Rock Shrewsbury music festival on the Saturday. We had the added bonus on Sunday of watching cycle races through the town. It was lovely to sit in a pub beer garden on the bank of the River Severn.

Very quaint city with lovely shops . Interesting walks. It is hilly in places for people with walking difficulties Met friendly local people who were only too happy to direct us to places.

I attended the 80's retro festival - Shrewsbury sticks - was fab! I could have stayed longer as I didn't have time to check out the many restaurants and shopping!

River cruise - excellent guide, informative about the history of Shrewsbury. Narrow streets, indoor market, variety of independent shops, good selection of old and new pubs and restaurants.

Probably the castle, the library, market road and the main square, St. Nicholas, St. Mary's
