From the traditional German sausage and gluehwein stands through to the intricate lacework and porcelain, this is a great choice.
Shrewsbury with Cruise on the Severn
Shrewsbury is situated inside a loop of the River Serern which makes it the ideal place to enjoy a cruise. When you are not on the water you can soak up the history of the town, from the medieval castle built by William the Conqueror in 1067 or the Ditherington Flax Mill which is commonly regarded as 'the grandfather of the skyscraper.'
From its ancient castle to peaceful back streets, exploring the perfect historic town of Ludlow is a real pleasure.
