Event description

Description

Discover spectacular Shrewsbury! Join us for a town centre tour and see for yourself what our magical magnificent shire has to offer!

Steeped in history, there is a story to be found behind every corner of our cobbled streets.

Older parts of Shrewsbury bristle with narrow, often hidden passageways, or shuts as we call them in Shropshire. Their names often reflect what was once sold there – Grope Lane being a good example! Draw your own conclusion as to what went on there! One thing we can tell you is that it has nothing to do with reaching out blindly and seeking ones way!

Shrewsbury is home to the worlds first skyscraper, the first ever iron framed struture. Our resident record breaking Town Crier has doubled for Hagrid in the Harry Potter films, he is the tallest you will find on the planet so you wont miss him! Ebenezer Scrooge is buried in the grounds of one of our 600 listed buidings! Charles Darwin was born here, and we have the worlds longest running horticutural show to make any of its Victorian founders very proud.

Shrewsbury is special, we just know you will think so too.

Spaces are limited to 20 per tour, so please book your tickets early to avoid dissapointment.
