Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside!


Take a trip back to discover how the Edwardians continued the development of seaside holidays and days out with bathing machines, donkey rides, piers and Punch & Judy! Find out what they wore on their days at the coast, how they got there and what they brought home as souvenirs. Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery will be bringing the seaside indoors, so watch out for rock pools, flying seagulls and saucy postcards!

The heart of the exhibition is the amazing collection of Edwardian lantern slides of seaside scenes. Perhaps your favourite resort will be among them!
