More Information

The evolution of Shrewsbury has seen the town, first mentioned in a charter dating back to the year 901, develop into a stunning historic and artistic centre, with over 660 listed buildings and dozens of museums and galleries. This historical survival of the fittest would have made Charles Darwin, Shrewsbury’s most famous son, proud. He attended school here and gained who knows how much early inspiration, playing by the clear sparkling waters of the River Severn which flow lazily through the town.There is a strong association with the heavier side of science too. The birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, just outside Shrewsbury, was sparked by John Wilkinson’s cast-iron bridge, now celebrated with UNESCO World Heritage status and plenty of award-winning museums.
