Welcome back: Support Shrewsbury as it reopens


As Shrewsbury begins to open its doors we look forward to welcoming you back and helping you discover what makes Shrewsbury a truly original destination.

Many of Shrewsbury's businesses are now open and implementing measures to ensure the safety of both customers and staff. These measures may include reduced opening hours, takeaway food and drink only, use of PPE and reduced customer numbers allowed inside.
