How to get there

Shrews­bury’s about 25 miles from the M6 at Stoke on Trent (from the north) or Can­nock (from the south), or from the south­west come off the M5 and head through Kid­der­min­ster and Bridg­north.

How long for?

At least a week­end — there’s plenty to see and do but, with Wales so close, it’s a great base for a longer stay.

When to go?

Try to avoid school hol­i­days, oth­er­wise it’s a good bet all year round. Late sum­mer/ au­tumn’s best for ex­plor­ing the roads.

How much?

There’s ac­com­mo­da­tion to suit every bud­get. Ho­tels in the town it­self start at around £50 a night (and go a LOT higher...) but there are cheaper B&BS in and around the town and sev­eral camp­sites nearby.
