We visit Shrewsbury, county town of Shropshire and birthplace of Charles Darwin. It rests inside a loop in the River Severn and is one of England’s most splendid heritage sites with quaint cobbled squares and half-timbered architecture as well as over six hundred listed buildings such as the circular St Chad’s Church.
Free time to perhaps follow the time honoured tradition of hopping aboard a ferry across the Mersey then explore Albert Dock where you’ll find the Tate Liverpool, The Beatles Story, International Slavery Museum and the Merseyside Maritime Museum as well as a range of eateries.
Walk the walls, admire the cathedral, visit the Roman amphitheatre, view Eastgate with its clock that marks the entrance to the Roman Fortress. Learn about the British Army at the Military Museum, stroll through leafy Grosvenor Park and along the banks of the River Dee or discover the castle.
