Daily walking tours

Shrewsbury Images

We offer year-round walking tours of Shrewsbury from the visitor information centre at Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery, in the heart of the historic town.

We have 30 carefully selected and trained green badge and blue badge guides, who have a vast range of experience and knowledge of the town, and present informative and entertaining commentaries on the history of the town, coloured by their own personalities.

2016/17 tour dates and times

Until 1 May 2017 tours will be on Saturdays only at 2pm. From 1 May to the end of October 2017 walking tours are daily:

  • Mon – Sat 2pm
  • Sundays 11.30am

Please book your tickets in advance, before the day of the tour:

  • Adult - £6
  • Child under 16 - £2.50

Tickets bought on the day of the tour:

  • Adult - £7.50
  • Child under 16 - £2.50

Tours last 90 mins. If you have any access issues please let the guide know and they'll plan their routes accordingly. Please note that tours start outside the museum but end where the guide chooses, somewhere in the centre of town. This can be negotiated with the participants.


Short-stay parking is available in Barker Street (up to two hours). Long-stay car parks are located at Frankwell, Raven Meadows and St Julian’s Friars. All car parks are pay and display - use our parking pages to find your nearest car park. Parking on Sundays costs a maximum of £1 in long stay car parks.

Group tours

We can arrange a tour for your group at a time to suit you at any time of the year.
