The local area guide to living in Shrewsbury

Shrewsbury is a vibrant market town in Shropshire, located on the River Severn. There are over 660 listed buildings around the town that are of medieval origin, including a wide range made from timber framing, which was archetypal of 15th and 16th century architecture. Along with its medieval aesthetics, the abundance of flowers around town are something of a local trademark.

The Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery recently opened in 2014, and is dedicated to the local area and history of Shrewsbury and Shropshire. There are a number of exhibitions that are held here at different times of the year, and it has had very favourable reviews. The Quarry Park is a 29 acre parkland, and plays host to such events as The Carnival, Shrewsbury Regatta, and Dragon Boat Racing. There are also two World Heritage Sites; the incredible Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, and the Ironbridge Gorge, both being ideal places to bring the whole family for the day. Charles Darwin was born in Shrewsbury, at the Mount House in 1809, and he spent much of his youth in the gardens there, beginning his true love for nature.
