A 90 minute tour of a few places barely scratching the surface of the wealth of history of Shrewsbury. However the tour was very well run and loads to see and learn that you would not find out on your own.

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...More
