Inspiration Wednesday – Shrewsbury

ShrewsburyThis week’s #InspirationWednesday is Shrewsbury in Shropshire. Originally a market town, Shrewsbury has over 660 listed buildings and a lot of history to discover. With a history of wool trade and brewing, horticulture is still very much an interest in the area, with the Shrewsbury Flower Show one of the largest events in England.

Shrewsbury Castle and Shrewsbury Abbey may be highlights but there’s more than medieval history to this town! You can explore the town from a boat on the River Severn, from the riverside Quarry Park or on foot.

Life in Shrewsbury is a relaxed and community-led environment, with farmers markets, folk festivals, cartoon festivals and a Darwin celebration annually. This is a visually stunning and friendly place to base your family for a feeling of being in the middle of the action, without the overwhelming feel of a big city.
