See the flowers at The Quarry 

This activity is perfect for the summer as all of the flowers are in full bloom and you can take time to relax in the gardens. It is also officially the host of the Shrewsbury Flower Show which normally takes place over two days in August.


From shopping the historic town centre to going to the market, you are bound to find some interesting items here! The award-winning Shrewsbury Market is home to traders selling a diverse range of goods from fresh fruits and vegetables to antiques and china.


Shrewsbury offers a few different places to satisfy your need for some theatre in your life! You could head to the Theatre Severn which hosts comedy, drama, dance and musicals. You could also head down to Alberts Shed which is a smaller theatre but has garnered a reputation for being the place to go to support local and touring artists.

Shrewsbury Castle

This castle is surrounded by the River Severn loop. This castle was erected during the Norman invasion and has been considered to be an impenetrable fortress. This restored castle is now home to the Shropshire Regimental Museum.
