The ancient town of Shrewsbury lies in the heart of Shropshire, just a stone's throw from the Welsh border. There are few towns that showcase England's layers of history like Shrewsbury does, with its spider's web of narrow medieval streets lined with slanted half-timbered Tudor homes and handsome Georgian red-brick terraces, which meet in picturesque squares and magnificent gardens. Stately castles, stained-glass-windowed churches and the encircling River Severn only add to its magic. It's been home to many famous folk, like Charles Darwin and WWI poet, Wilfred Owen, not to mention old Salopians like travel writer and Monty Python's Flying Circus co-creator, Michael Palin, who went to Shrewsbury School.
Magnificent red-brick terraced houses and country farmhouse B&Bs, Shrewsbury
It matters little whether you're coming for a romantic break or a historic getaway, Shrewsbury bed and breakfasts have got you covered. It would be a shame to visit such an ancient place and spend your evenings holed up in a sterile chain hotel when you've got the opportunity to stay in one of the charming B&Bs. Some are tucked away down hidden little streets in charming old wattle and daub houses that have been inns for centuries. Others are more stately affairs, in splendid detached Georgian houses whose fronts are covered in creeping ivy. Others still are found in quaint cottages in the rolling Shropshire countryside, where you'll have the best of both worlds. Of course, there are budget-friendly bed and breakfasts in Shrewsbury, too, which offer plenty of bang for your buck. Whatever your tastes and budget, you'll find the perfect match by scrolling through the detailed listings on Expedia. Search by price and location, scan the descriptions and photos, and book in just a few clicks.
Though the bed and breakfasts in Shrewsbury differ immensely, you'll always find a warm welcome when you arrive. Most have been run by the owners for decades and over the years they've refined the art of homely hospitability. You'll likely glean plenty of insider tips on the best places to visit or eat when you chat with the owners, many of whom were born locally. Once you've checked in, you'll almost always find a spacious room packed with the kind of facilities you'd find in a hotel, like a kettle for making hot drinks, ensuite bathroom stocked with fluffy towels and toiletries, and free WiFi. If you pick right, you could score a room with views overlooking one of Shrewsbury's historic landmarks or nab a B&B surrounded by well-manicured English gardens, where you can kick back with a coffee and newspaper on a sunny summer morning. Before you head out for a day of Shrewsbury exploration, there'll always be breakfast waiting for you downstairs. Expect things like full English breakfasts, pastries and fruit, to be washed down with plenty of freshly brewed tea. In short, Shrewsbury bed and breakfasts are your little home away from home. Why not combine a visit to historic Shrewsbury with a visit to the galleries and museums in Manchester?
There's a historical landmark around every corner when you leave your Shrewsbury B&B
You won't have to look hard to immerse yourself in the town's history when you leave your Shrewsbury bed and breakfast, and you can do as little or as much as you like. If you're in the mood for a little culture, you could dive into one of the small galleries, amble around Shrewsbury Castle or score tickets for one of the performances at the Theatre Severn. Then there are the churches and cathedrals, whose spires contribute to the town's splendid skyline. If all that sounds like too much effort, make a beeline for the 30-acre Quarry Park, which lies along the banks of the winding river, and stretch out with a good book in the spectacular surroundings.
