The Tudor town of Shrewsbury is a pretty staycation destination in rural Shropshire. History is around every corner, with rows of timber-fronted houses lining the High Street and over 600 lovely listed buildings that truly bring the past to life. Shrewsbury’s most famous resident was Charles Darwin and you’ll spot numerous references to the great biologist as you wander around. There are endless things to see and do, whether you stick to the centre of town or hop over the border into Wales.

Spend a long weekend in Shrewsbury and enjoy visiting the eye-catching Shrewsbury Castle and the Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery. Founded in 1835, the museum is a diary of Shropshire’s past and houses everything from Roman relics and ceramics to fine art. Shrewsbury hosts several events throughout the year, too. For culture-seekers, the Darwin Festival is an eclectic program of philosophical and biological events, while the Shrewsbury Folk Festival brings folk and Americana vibes to the town.

Hikers will be in their element in Shrewsbury. Haughmond Hill is an iconic forest park just outside the centre with trails offering fantastic views over the River Severn. The long-distance Shropshire Way is a bigger challenge, linking Shrewsbury with beautiful historic gems like Much Wenlock, Iron Bridge and Ludlow. For those who love a National Trust pootle, try Attingham Park — a vast estate with an 18th-century Regency mansion at its heart. Why not also plan some day trips to neighbouring towns like Church Stretton, Oswestry, Market Drayton and the uniquely-named village of Hook-a-Gate?

Our accommodation options in this pretty corner of Shropshire come in all shapes and sizes, from cosy romantic boltholes to larger homes for groups of family or friends. We even have a set of yurts available, while some holiday homes offer you your very own private hot tub. Let us help you find your ideal holiday cottage in Shrewsbury today!
