“Lovely scenery in the middle of town”
Review of The Quarry

The Quarry
Ranked #2 of 80 things to do in Shrewsbury
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 4 May 2018

The Quarry is the green jewel with the "loop" of the severn bordering directly onto Shrewsbury town. St Chads sit at the top of the Quarry hill in sentinel position. The memorial gardens in the centre are a nice quiet place to sit and listen to the water fountains and the walk along the river from Welsh- to English- Bridge is about 3km (2 miles). Apart from a brief area from near the St Julian Friars toe-bridge past the tennis club that is not very well lit in darkness, it is very enjoyable at every time of the day. There are amenities eg a children play area near the Boathouse bridge and also the Quarry Swimming/Leisure facility in the same area. The Quarry is also used for events. The "park" is reasonably well maintained and generally presented with a good level of overall care. Every visitor to Shrewsbury should take a walk along the Severn around the town and enjoy the natural beauty that is strongly supported locally.

How lucky is Shrewsbury to have such a wonderful area within a stones throw of the town centre. River throws a circular cordon around the area. No one should ever be short of a walk in Shrewsbury no matter level of ability. Wonderful gardens ablaze with colour, areas to play with the kids etc etc envious

Fantastic visit. The flowers were blooming beyond expectation this year (2018). Superb. We were doing a weekend in Shropshire and Wales and did this prior to a tour of Dana Prison. Well worth the walk.
