Get outdoors in April

As the weather warms and the days lengthen, Shrewsbury blossoms into the perfect town for al fresco dining and outdoor fun. Dining in the town square, picnics in the Quarry, boat trips on the River Severn, heritage tours through medieval streets and passageways – when you visit Shrewsbury in the warmer months, you'll see the town in a completely different light.
