Shrewsbury Castle

Whether you’re a friend or foe everyone is welcome to explore the grounds of this ancient site for free.

The fortifications that have been on this site since 1074 have both protected the town from invaders and welcomed dignitaries over the centuries.

Today the elegant sandstone castle, modernised by Thomas Telford in the 18th century stands proud and you can walk the ramparts to enjoy the fine views across the town and river.

Housed in the main castle building is the Soldiers of Shropshire Museum.

See separate listing for details and admission costs to the museum.
