Event description

Description

A Fabulous opportunity to have a guided tour of this magnificent Grade I listed building.

Shrewsbury Library stands majestically proud in the Castle Gates area of the town centre. The site was the home of Shrewsbury School from 1550 to 1882. Charles Darwin was educated here and his statue can be found just outside the main entrance.

Just behind Darwin are two figures bearing the inscriptions "Philomathes" and "Polumathes". These represent students, one coming to learn, and the other a learned scholar on leaving. Join us for an informed tour and experience the splendour of this beautiful building and the many stories it has to tell!
