The Darwin and Pride Hill shopping centres both incorporate a choice of high street stores and cafés, while The Parade is home to a number of unique local retailers. Many interesting boutiques and specialist shops can also be found in Shrewsbury’s ‘shuts’ – the network of alleys and passageways that criss-cross the town centre – and along Wyle Cop, a steep, winding street which is renowned for its variety of independent brands.

Shrewsbury’s food scene celebrates the diversity of rural Shropshire’s produce, with eateries such as Csons, Riverbank Bar and Kitchen, which overlooks the River Severn, and upscale dining restaurant The Walrus each offering menus crafted with local and sustainable ingredients. For authentic international cuisine, the award-winning La Dolce Vita specialises in fine Italian cooking, while Casa Naranjo serves Spanish tapas in traditional taverna-style surroundings.

Nearer to home, there is a small supermarket situated around half a mile from Copthorne Keep; a larger supermarket can be found about five minutes’ drive away at Meole Brace Retail Park, alongside a selection of retail stores and casual eateries.

The annual Shrewsbury Folk Festival draws thousands of visitors to the town each summer, and presents dozens of acts from across the UK and around the world; Darwin Shrewsbury Festival, which takes place each February, celebrates the life of the naturalist who was raised in the town, through a varied programme of entertainment. Further tributes to Charles Darwin can be found around the city, including numerous way-markers indicating places that influenced his life.

The town benefits from a 29-acre park on the banks of the River Severn: The Quarry, which plays host each year to the Shrewsbury Flower Show, plus regular music and food festivals and sporting events. For children, there is a large play area and water park. Nearby, Theatre Severn, the town’s foremost performing arts venue, also overlooks the river; additionally, Shrewsbury benefits from an independent cinema, Old Market Hall, located in the heart of the town centre.
