The beds in The Dingle are always stunning, especially during August when the annual Shrewsbury Flower Show is held. There is a bandstand, play area for children as well as walks along the River Severn. There are daily... More

Who doesn't know the name Percy Thrower? although the gardeners were beginning the task of stripping, tilling and replanting the flowerbeds the amazing quarry garden was a wonderful experience. The attention to detail in the planting and the husbandry was second to none. Our (7 in our group) visit here was one of the highlights of our first visit to... More

This is a lovely place to visit. October and some of the plants had been lifted and the gardens looked a bit bare but it still looked fantastic.

Beautiful park in the centre of Shrewsbury. Walk along the river Severn and visit the lovely Percy Thrower designed gardens and the bandstand. Kids will enjoy the play park and there are a number of good restaurants close by including The Armoury. There are concerts held in the Quarry occasionally and it hosts the annual Shrewsbury Flower Show as well... More
