Shrewsbury is a market town whose centre is defined by a large loop of the River Severn which surrounds it. Within the loop are higgledy-piggledy streets, timber-framed buildings, a castle dating back to the 11th century, a 16th century market hall where Welsh wool was once traded, and a 29 acre park with a formal floral masterpiece called The Dingle. To cross the Severn there's Welsh Bridge, or alternatively you can use English Bridge to reach the imposing and celebrated Shrewsbury Abbey.
