Castle Quarter

Castle Quarter

Named for Shrewsbury’s magnificent 18th century sandstone castle, the Castle Quarter is a hive of activity. Stretching from Castle Foregate to St Mary’s and the top of Pride Hill, it is one of the main gateways to Shrewsbury’s town centre.

Castle Gates is an avenue of independent businesses, including health and beauty specialists, grocers, eateries and more. Leading up the hill to the town centre, you’ll pass many historically significant buildings, including Shrewsbury Library, Castle and the beautiful timber-framed Castle Gates House.

Connecting Castle Gates with Shrewsbury’s main shopping area, Pride Hill, Castle Street offers an exciting mix of independents and national favourites. Here you can pamper at independent salons, indulge at unique eateries, shop all the latest fashions and more!  

The Castle Quarter is also home to four of Shrewsbury’s largest historic buildings: 18th century Shrewsbury castle, Grade II listed Shrewsbury Library, exciting attraction Shrewsbury Prison and the 19th century, mock Tudor train station.
