Once visiting Shrewsbury, you should take a walking tour. A ticket costs £5, and it takes about 90 minutes to walk around. A guide will take you from place to place giving historical facts about the city and places. You can buy a ticket at the tourist information centre, situated right behind the Market Hall.
