There is now an excellent little café in the church. Tasty and well presented lunches are served here from a very small kitchen by cheerful staff or perhaps volunteers.Another part of the church is a small gallery for local artists.

Well worth a visit! Although a small building, it has outstanding stained glass windows. Some of the best we've seen anywhere. Nothing to dislike.

Hemmed in by much later buildings the church has faired well and the steeple stands proud in the beautiful skyline of Shrewsbury. I'm told (although I can't confirm) that St Mary's steeple can be seen from every angle around the town? Inside its humble in its simplicity as a good English church is expected to be, a walk through the... More

Nice place to sit and reflect. The building itself is impressive and looks inviting from the outside, gives a nice break from the busyness of life to be able to sit and just enjoy the surroundings.

It is difficult to understand why this church has been deconsecrated. The lovely building stands near the centre of the town and contains many exquisite medieval and modern stained glass windows together with various war memorials to the fallen soldiers of several Shropshire regiments. Also here is the memorial to the famous Admiral Benbow who was born in the parish.... More

St. Marys Church is steeped in history you can escape the weather and have a good look at the architecture then visit the café it is a real treat selling very good food and soups although it is small and gets very busy it is well worth a visit. Clean and reasonable prices.
