Shrewsbury has preserved much of its original architecture and is famous all around the world for being the birthplace of Charles Darwin.
Its vibrant centre boasts over 600 listed buildings, including its very own red sandstone Castle, erected to watch over the town’s walls in 1076, to the
Shrewsbury Abbey, the inspired setting for the popular Cadfael Chronicles

Numerous regeneration projects have started to flourish in and around the town’s walls with more new builds popping up for rental and first time buyers.
