The town’s most iconic historical sites is Shrewsbury Castle. From its hilltop position, this red sandstone castle provides a picture-perfect view of the town below, and as the sun sets, it takes on an atmospheric glow against the sky. The nearby Museum and Art Gallery houses many artefacts collected from the castle grounds, including Roman jewellery and coins to medieval amulets and charms.
Why not experience a different side of life with a peaceful boat trip along the river? Slow moving, with the gentle ripple of water against the bow, there’s nothing quite like relaxing on a boat. However, for something more dramatic, why not hire a canoe, and see the river from a more intimate perspective. With just a quick instruction session, you’ll be off, under your own steam, to explore the waterways around Shrewsbury.
With an eclectic mix of performances and shows, Theatre Severn has something to suit every taste. From ballet to Disney, comedy to jazz, it’s the ideal way to relax before catching the train home.
