Day Three

Our excursion today is to Shrewsbury, packed with timber framed black & white buildings, amongst narrow alleyways surrounded by the River Severn. Explore the red sandstone castle of Shrewsbury or maybe the Dingle Gardens, 29 acres of parkland known for its vibrant flower gardens & fountains.
