Shrewsbury is the county town of Shropshire, lying on the River Severn.
Higgledy-piggledy streets with names you want to say out loud – Bear Steps, Wyle Cop and Grope Lane. A river that scoops up the town in a loop. Burger and fries in a medieval cellar. Two bridges, each with a different nationality. Wonky buildings left, right and centre. A cappuccino and a bike to go. Bread, still warm, made with flour from a water mill a few miles away. Mick Jagger and Margaret Thatcher watching from a 1500’s building. A blockbuster in a Tudor cinema. The world’s tallest town crier. 921 years of wine buffs. Three million blooms in a quarry..
From Sweeney Hall Hotel to Shrewsbury will take 30 minutes by car.
