Places to see in Shrewsbury


Dingle Quarry Garden st Chads Shrewsbury

The Quarry is the main park in the Shropshire county. It is not too far from the Shrewsbury train station. It took me about 15-20 minutes to walk.

It is called “the Quarry” park as there used to be a stone quarry there, used in the Middle Ages. It was a small quarry and now has been transformed into a flower garden with ponds and fountains, called The Dingle (dingle is a Shropshire word used for a picturesque valley.

St. Chad’s church is just opposite the Dingle garden.

Another place to visit is the city center which retains its old charm.

There is a fort right next to the train station.

I would not say Shrewsbury being a must see attraction in the UK.
