Shrewsbury's mini murals trail


This summer Shrewsbury's artists have been out in force decorating the town centre's Openreach Boxes with colourful mini murals.

To date 14 boxes have been painted, each illustrating animals from across the globe inspired by life in Shrewsbury and our town's favourite son Charles Darwin. Amongst others, you can find Wyle Cop's Lion Hotel and Snooty Fox Jewellers bought to life, an hommage to Shrewsbury's dog walkers on St John's Hill and an Enlightened Orangutan hidden on Castle Gates  - all waiting to be discovered!

Explore our interactive map below and plan your trail around all 14 of Shrewsbury's mini murals. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled as new artworks are unveiled over the coming weeks!

With the help of local artist Charlotte Tisdale, the artist who created the dog walkers mini mural, we've created a new tear off mini mural guide which you can pick up from Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery and many town centre businesses.
