Travel Tips for Shrewsbury

haunted! or not

by uglyscot

Near the Old Lion Tap , on the main road is the Lion Hotel. A lion statue is above the door. This is an old hotel , and there have been rumours that it is haunted . One of the main sites is the cellar.

Shrewsbury Abbey

by antistar

The red Abbey is probably Shrewsbury's most famous landmark, although there's not much of the abbey left except for the red church. Henry VIII didn't leave much after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, and what was left had a road built through it when Thomas Telford brought the A5 to Shrewsbury.

A lot of the Abbey's fame comes from its use as the setting for the Cadfael mystery series. The fictional Brother Cadfael was a Welsh monk at Shrewsbury Abbey.

Shrewsbury Castle

by antistar

The river Severn gave Shrewsbury a natural protective ring, but it didn't fully encircle it. So at the neck of the river's meander, a great castle was built. Unfortunately not much of the castle has survived the centuries and sieges, and today much of the red sandstone castle is the result of early 20th century restorations.

The castle now houses a regimental museum.

Shrewsbury

"County Town"

Shrewsbury is the county town of Shropshire and a very beautiful town it is too (except for the usual 1960's town centre disasters that besmirch most of our town centres). Shrewsbury likes to boast that they have over 600 listed buildings in the town and I can quite believe it. There are half timbered wattle and daub houses everywhere you look. The town centre is mostly pedestrianised and there are shuts and alleys running everywhere that link up the main streets. The main shopping malls have been built behind the main street and are tastefully hidden from view. Shrewsbury's two most famous sons are Charles Darwin and Clive of India (although he was born in nearby Market Drayton).

"The Castle"

The castle dates from the Norman conquest in 1066 but was much altered in later centuries. The famous civil engineer Thomas Telford lived here in the late 18th century. The castle now houses the museum of the Shropshire Regiment.

"The Abbey"

Another legacy of the Normans. The abbey was founded in 1083 and there are signs of romanesque and gothic styles. Its a pretty good place to park your car because its free for 3 hours and just a short walk into town.
