Shropshire Council

Guided tours for groups

We have a team of 25 carefully selected green and/or blue badge town guides. Your group can be any size, however you'll need one guide for every 20 people.

Although we suggest an approximate time of 90 minutes for walking tours of the historic town centre the start point and duration can be easily adapted to suit your itinerary, with the latest departure time being 7pm. Why not think about a themed walking tour for your group. 

Popular themes
