Shropshire Council

General walking tours

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.

Tour dates

We have sadly decided cancel all our guided tours for the summer.  We hope to be able to restart these as soon as we are able to, following government guidelines and social distancing permitting.

We'll announce any news we have on our guided walks on these pages just as soon as we can.


Tickets bought 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

Additional information

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.
