We've known just how fantastic Shrewsbury is for years or is that Shrowsbury... let's leave that for another time because here and now we're all about celebrating our wonderful town for featuring in "The Week" magazines' top 10 places to visit in the UK.
The article (published 24/09/19) firstly highlights the UK as being the sixth most popular tourist destination in the world before going on to detail just whereupon our isle made that converted top 10 spot. And yes Shrewsbury's right there, shoulder to shoulder with the dare we say clichés of UK hotspots; London, Cambridge and Oxford.
