I went to Shrewsbury today Tuesday 27th January, I only live thirty five via train away from the town and I've been through it, waited at the train station countless times but I've actually never been there. Shrewsbury is a town in the Shropshire county part of England though with its close proximity to North Wales you would think it's a welsh town.
Although I was only in the town for purely business purposes I got the chance to wander around a little bit, I managed to browse and see how pretty it is. It has such a great number of charming little independent shops and retailers, something which is slowly becoming rare in North Wales and was really nice to see. I enjoyed the colours, the architecture in Shrewsbury as in a lot of places in the Uk, is a mixture of preserved old buildings, modernised and new buildings all living together side by side harmoniously creating an interesting visual relationship which is quintessentially British.
I truly enjoyed my little Shrewsbury moment so much and I actually look forward to going there more and more. One thing I will do is try a couple of the cute little food places I walked by today due to time, because they all just look like they serve the best soups, burgers and have the warmest of staff too. I can't wait to go back!
