The UK has lots of fantastic destinations if you want to book a staycation. You can choose seasides, quaint market towns, historic sites, National Parks, and more. But, if you are planning a trip and want something different, you may want to look at places to stay in Shrewsbury. This is a beautiful part of England with lots of great things to do and see.
An idyllic county spot
Shrewsbury itself is an enchanting town with a wonderful history dating back to the Early Middle Ages. You can see lots of amazing signs of this heritage, including an 11th century red sandstone castle, several stunning churches, and a medieval street plan that remains largely intact. In total there are well over 600 buildings with listings to preserve them. This includes some really attractive Tudor houses.
While the architecture is definitely notable, the town is also very green. It is within a loop of the River Severn. As a result, the southern part of Shrewsbury is a wonderful spot for nature lovers. There are river walks and a National Cycle Route follows the curve of the river. Visitors should go to The Quarry to see the beautiful lush gardens.
When you visit Shrewsbury you can take a trip to the traditional Market Hall. This is a great destination for food lovers, whether they want fresh produce or specialist foods. The town also has lots of great restaurants and pubs.
One of the most interesting things about Shrewsbury is that it is the birthplace of Charles Darwin. He was born at the Mount, a stunning Georgian house that is now home to the District Valuer and Valuation Office. Darwin was christened at St. Chad’s Church in the town.
