This church is a beautiful church and it was where we wanted to get married originally but as they don't do weddings anymore or even have services we settled on St Chad's to get married at but even that wouldn't stop this church getting a good view, the church is beautiful and they do open to the public to have...

Finally got around to going into this church after years of walking past when shopping in town. What a beautiful historic building. An antiques event was being held and there were some nice pieces. The stained glass windows are beautiful. Lovely.

A very impressive town-centre church with one of the tallest Spires in England. Well worth a visit, even a short one. From the noise of the town. A nice little coffee bar to one side is worth a visit

This is truly a most beautiful historic church. We've been impressed by small churches in our time and this one is right up there with the best. A beautiful church in a beautiful town.

This fascinating old church is well known for its beautiful stained glass windows. It is no longer a place of worship, but very innovertive trustees have diversified & hold regular Vintage Fairs, as well as some concerts. There is a small cafe inside which can do soups as well as cake & coffee. Wheelchair access is easy for the building... More

This is a beautiful church that is no longer used for religious purposes on any regular basis. I used to quite enjoy visiting here (I spend quite a lot of time in Shrewsbury) I found that once a café was added, the whole experience was diminished somewhat. The café is wildly overpriced and I would avoid stopping there (there are... More

What a lovely way to emply an old church. We visited on a Saturday afternoon with a chocolate festival taking place. Nice cafe with lovely food. Staff were a little glum though!

I have visited St. Mary's church over many years - it's tall spire is like a beacon of hope in Shrewsbury. It is a beautiful church that has a quiet peacefulness - well worth a visit when you are in Shrewsbury!

We (party of seven) visited the church and were blessed beyond our wildest expectation. The delightful lady steward/guide was effervescent in here delight to have sympathetic and interested listeners as she first gave the history of the stained glass windows and then allowed us into places not open to the general public. What a shame that the church is only... More
