Shropshire Key Towns

Shrewsbury


Shrewsbury lies along the River Severn and is the county town of Shropshire. Shrewsbury was once voted “the healthiest town in England” and when you go there you can see why. The town has a calm tranquil feeling as you wander along the high street. Shrewsbury is somewhat unique in that its’ independent retailers outnumber the high street chains giving it a certain charm that many other high streets have sadly lost.

The town has a fascinating Tudor cinema, museum, art gallery, theatre and castle as well as a thriving café culture.

Whitchurch


The market town of Whitchurch sits on the borders of Wales and Cheshire and is 21 miles north of Shrewsbury.

The town has a number of independent shops and cafes, 5 supermarkets, a leisure centre and weekly local markets. Whitchurch is a pretty little town with a mixture of half-timbered buildings and Georgian town houses. Victoria Jubilee park is a stunning open park with bandstand and children’s play area.
