Shrewsbury Castle


shrewsbury castle

Shrewsbury Castle is a red sandstone castle which stands on a hill in the neck of the meander of the River Severn on which the town originally developed. The castle is situated directly above Shrewsbury railway station and is a Grade I listed building.
Laura's Tower overlooks the surrounding townscape and further out to the countryside. Marriages take place here and the castle grounds are used sometimes for plays, which have included the Canterbury Tales, among others. Since 1985, the castle has housed the Shropshire Regimental Museum, with artefacts from the King's Shropshire Light Infantry.
