Lots of lovely stalls

The Parade Shopping Centre is away from the main shopping streets but well worth checking out. It is next to St Mary's church.

There are two floors with lots of little shops and restaurants selling a variety of things. Many local businesses selling things you won't get in regular stores.

A real gem!

Like it here for a lovely wander around somewhere different. Unusual purchases. Bit of the beaton track, but close to the town centre. Worth the short walk. Worth taking a peek.

A good idea!!
Mar 2019 • Couples
We visited this small shopping centre which is rather hidden away behind St Mary’s Church. There are a number of unusual shops and a cafeteria that has a separate area for children and mothers. A wonderful idea which means the children can play together and the adults can have their coffee in peace.

Hidden behind St Mary's Church
Dec 2018 • Solo
An attractive shopping centre with small independent shops and a café which makes a pleasant change from the two large Shrewsbury shopping centres which are almost entirely filled by national chain stores. The shops include a stamp dealer, a record store and a bookshop, plus an upmarket men's tailor. The centre takes up the ground floor and basement of an impressive building, which is tucked away behind St Mary's and has a small car park.

Unexpected pleasure
Jul 2017 • Friends
Four of us went to The Parade shopping arcade as the ladies were told of a shop selling Japanese groceries. A couple of shops along we called in to the River view cafe for coffee. A very pleasant young man greeted us and showed us to a table outside (it was a nice day). It wasn't very busy but the people at 3 or 4 tables were eating and the food looked good. We were offered a menu and decided that we would stay for lunch. What a good decision. No "greasy spoon" this cafe. I had an excellent Panini (with salad) my wife had a Quiche (home made) and our friends had Jacket potatoes. The service was great and the coffee was good and hot.
We were not the only customers to comment to the waiter about how nice our food was. Tables were cleaned as soon as customers left (sprayed, not just wiped). My wife and our friends travel a lot and tend to avoid "Brand Name" eateries so my review is based on other cafe experiences. This comes out with the top. I recommend that you visit and if the weather is good then sit at a table outside. There is a river view but we were more taken with the food and service. Excellent value.

The River View Cafe
May 2017 • Friends
Hidden away in The Parade is this perfect café - The River View Cafe. It was quiet and empty which suited us perfectly. There was plenty of food and drinks on offer. I had apple juice, and they produced a huge glass which beats the usual thimble fulls! The staff were really pleasant, and even split the bill at the end for us. If the weather was nicer, we would have loved to sit outside. Will be revisiting.

The River View Cafe - a real gem!!
Apr 2017 • Couples
Whenever we're visiting Shrewsbury we always head for The Parade so that we can enjoy a leisurely light lunch at The River View Cafe. Although a small cafe it is so welcoming and the food and coffee is excellent. Homemade food at its best! Well worth a visit.

Worth a walk of an evening.

Staying in the area, we walked through on our way back to the Premier Inn down by the river.
Nice mix of history in the area.
Lots of interesting shops, though most were closed when we passed through in early evening.
