We loved Shrewsbury - we did the walking tour of the city with an excellent guide. You can book this via the Tourist Office in the town centre. Lots to see and do not just shopping. We stayed at St Nicholas which was really good.

A beautiful town. Lots of black and white timber buildings, lovely shops and restaurants. The Quarry Park and The Dingle are beautiful. Trip on Sabrina down the river was lovely.
