Shrewsbury is a wonderful place to live; it's historic (and modern) buildings are accepted as a tourist attraction. Being the birthplace of Charles Darwin gives us a lot to look back on. 'Quantum Leap', the massive sculpture opposite the Theatre on Smithfield Road is definitely worth looking at in detail.

The river Severn loops around the town, giving  focal points and a great boundary to the 'Quarry' park where each year (2nd week in August) the Shrewsbury Flower Show is held. Family and musical events/ food and river festivals are held during holiday periods.
