Shrewsbury is a beautiful medieval market town located near the Border of Wales in Shropshire, England. This “Town of Flowers” makes for a lovely weekend away from the nearby large cities of Birmingham or Liverpool.
I met a friendly local who kindly showed me some of the finer aspects of his handsome hometown. I did not concoct any stories in this birthplace of Charles Darwin as my visit was smooth and amicable. The closest I came to having any excitement was when I discovered that I had left my car window open for two days in a large open public car park and it rained.
Here are some pics from my visit to Shrewsbury in the summer of 2013.
Located within a loop of the River Severn, Shrewsbury boasts lovely riverside walks and a fun boat tour on the Sabrina.
It doesn’t get better than this. I love the cute and cozy architecture, it just feels so warm and welcoming. Of course, I was being welcomed by a local for my visit (a rare experience for me) so that didn’t hurt!

I don’t always find a story everywhere I go, but I hope you enjoyed learning a bit about this lovely town anyway. Thanks for visiting http://www.PersonalTravelStories.com!
