A beautiful and very unusual church in the round. I hadn't seen one before. As you would expect, very peaceful inside, away from the hustle and bustle of the town. The graveyard holds a very special grave too! Ebenezer Scrooge!

A Christmas Carol (the one with George C Scott) was filmed in Shrewsbury. The gravestone was left in situ after filming was complete in the grounds of St Chad's; great photo opportunity that shouldn't be missed!

My husband and I saw this whilst on the Sabrina boat trip. On departing the boat we made our way to the Church walking through the lovely park past Hercules statue and the Quarry. The bells can be heard from all over and ring every 15 mins. Amazing building and a must when visiting Shrewsbury. We were surprised how quiet... More

http://stchadschurchshrewsbury.com/building-for-the-future/history/ This was a really unusual church - it has a circular nave. It's used a lot for concerts, and although I haven't attended one there, I would imagine the acoustics would be fabulous. It's well worth a visit. St Alkmund's Shrewsbury is unusual with its painted rather than stained glass windows - do visit. And the streets around St... More

For me this is the jewel in Shrewsbury. It is a beautiful and unusual church. Definately worth a visit. Several steps up to the main entrance so enquire about access if this is a problem before you visit.

Superb, well worth a visit. On our visit the bells were ringing and inside the organist was playing and the sound was excellent. Beautiful stained glass windows. Unusual round main body of the church with very tall tower. Excellent views from the church overlooking the River Severn

The is a fascinating circular church that has a great atmosphere. The font is easy to miss but have a close look at the material from which it is made. Luckily when we visited someone was practicing on the organ which is well worth hearing. It is not usually very busy, in fact we were the only visitors. In the... More

This Georgian church is very fine and a great example of how to mix the wonderful original features with its obvious present day use as a living church.

I attend the annual Remembrance Day parade in Shrewsbury & am always in awe of this church's stature. As we march around the corner towards the church to begin our service, it always seems to capture both my attention & also serves to further focus on the sombre nature of the service. That said though, the church recently went through... More
