Wyle Cop

Reputed to be the longest row of uninterrupted independents in the UK, Wyle Cop is a must-visit when in Shrewsbury.

Take time to explore this eclectic mix of retailers, here you’ll find everything from designer clothing and jewellery to vintage finds and flowers. Scattered along the Cop you can also find a selection of Shrewsbury’s outstanding eateries and coffee shops, as well as some truly unique, and award-winning hotels.

Wyle Cop is a beautiful example of Shrewsbury’s architectural history. Overlooking the street are many of our town’s 16th and 17th century timber-framed buildings, and the Cop is home to 39 of Shrewsbury’s almost 800 listed buildings!
