A fine example of a Tudor town: 48 hours in Shrewsbury from Bradt Guides
As with all old towns and cities, a closer inspection of Shrewsbury will reward the curious-minded. You’ll find street names describing what was once sold there (Butcher Row, Milk Street … and don’t think too hard about the dark and narrow Grope Lane).
Despite this palpable sense of the past, Shrewsbury is alive with the here and now. A steady spring of smart new bars, independent restaurants and innovative shops makes me excited about every visit.
