Shrewsbury has an ever growing list of great places to stay.

Shrewsbury is one of those towns; small enough to walk around without getting too lost, but still keeps you on your toes. Every twist and turn; the cobbled streets and the wood-clad Tudor buildings present you with another piece of history, and Shrewsbury has seen a lot.

 To get the most out of Shrewsbury, and the surrounding area, we suggest a long weekend. This gives you enough to time, to explore Shrewsbury’s historic streets, and to see some of the beautiful surrounding countryside.

But with so many choices for accommodation, it can be hard to pick the perfect place to stay. So we made this handy guide for some of our favourite hotels in the town.
