There is no better way to explore somewhere than on foot and a walking tour gives a super introduction to any town.
As a specialist guide in Shropshire I would be delighted to lead you on tours around any of the county's towns - not just Shrewsbury but perhaps also in Ludlow, Much Wenlock, Oswestry, Bridgnorth... Like the coach tours, these can be customised to suit any group, so please feel free to contact me to discuss whatever would suit you and your group. Walking tours generally last for 1 1/2 hours.
Perhaps you have a particular interest that you would like me to concentrate on. Listed below are some suggestions for such tours:
Brother Cadfael's Shrewsbury
Based on the detective stories written by the local author, Ellis Peters, these tours show places featured in the stories and the genuine history behind them.
Famous (and infamous) Shrewsbury people
Heroes, villains, scientists, writers, engineers, royalty - they've all played a part in the history of the town.
Shuts and passages of old Shrewsbury
The heart of any medieval town would have been a warren of tiny alleyways. Explore Gullet Passage and Grope Lane and discover how they got their names.
Medieval and Tudor Shrewsbury
Shrewsbury has to be one of the best preserved old towns in England with a wealth of wonderful buildings. Alternatively, you may prefer to explore Tudor and Stuart Shrewsbury, 18th century (Georgian) Shrewsbury or Victorian Shrewsbury.
Charles Darwin's Shrewsbury
Born in Shrewsbury in 1809, the young Charles Darwin was never considered by his tutors to be a potential world changer. Discover how this town so influenced the man.
The Battle of Shrewsbury in 1403
Explore the site where the longbow was first used by both sides in a battle on English soil - to lethal effect.
The River Severn
Shrewsbury is almost completely encircled by the River Severn. This is a particularly enjoyable walk for a summer's evening.
