The Official Tourism Website for Shropshire

The team at Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings are celebrating beautiful buildings this May Half Term. Kids go Free into The Mill, an unmissable exhibition that tells the fascinating story of the building that was the grandparent of the modern skyscraper.


Unlock your family’s inner-architect with A Cardboard Townscape, as they hail Shrewsbury’s diverse collection of buildings by making as many as they can in cardboard to build a soapbox-Salop. Which one will you make? Will you bring back a beautiful building no longer there?


Explore the historic site with The Coronet Trail, a free route that celebrates the building’s clever adaptation in 1897 from a Flaxmill to a barley Maltings.


The Mill exhibition and acclaimed Turned Wood Café are open daily through the school holidays, with the Café serving a range of meals, small plates, drinks and of course cake.


Adrian Perks, Visitor Experience Manager for Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings said:


“Shrewsbury has an incredible range of historic buildings and, as structures like Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings show, Salopians were not afraid to experiment with new technology to make buildings that solved problems. We look forward to celebrating our beautiful buildings with you this May Half Term.”

"🏰✨ Dive into the heart of Shrewsbury's Castle Quarter – the epicenter of history and grandeur! 🏰 Home to four of the town's largest historic treasures – Shrewsbury Castle, Library, Prison, and Train Station. 

Did you know Shrewsbury Castle's foundations were laid in 1083 by the 1st Earl of Shrewsbury, Roger de Montgomery? 
Montgomery, a cousin of William the Conqueror, earned this castle and more as a thank-you for his aid during the Norman conquest.

From royal stronghold to a 16th-century transformation, Shrewsbury Castle has quite the story. Now, it stands majestically, housing the Shropshire Regimental Museum. 👑🏰 Ready to step into the pages of history?
