Scrobbesbyrig to the Saxons, the county town of Shropshire is first mentioned in a charter of 901. Shrewsbury is a stunning historic town with over 660 listed buildings and some very strange street names - Dogpole and Mardol, Gullet Passage and Grope Lane.
Part of the town's medieval street plan still exists withShrewsbury's Shuts and Passages - a unique maze of narrow alleys, which criss-cross the town centre.
Shrewsbury also has great shops, especially the kind of interesting, independent shops that so many towns have lost or let go.
We're particularly proud of our food shops, not forgetting the indoor market on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. The Roman vineyard at Wroxeter and Tanners wine merchants head up a good selection of wine sellers and hostelries who will make sure you don't go thirsty.
