Shrewsbury Castle set to reopen to the public on 25 July 2020

The opening will enable visitors to explore the stunning castle grounds which have been maintained by Shrewsbury Town Council throughout the closure.

When visiting the Castle grounds, visitors will be able to have picnics as long as they adhere to social distancing rules at all times.

Laura’s Tower will remain closed as there is only one path which doesn’t enable social distancing.

The Castle grounds will be open during museum opening hours only.

Along with the gardens, the Soldiers of Shropshire Museum which is housed inside the Castle itself will also be open from Saturday 25 July 2020.

Shropshire Museum is pleased to have received Visit England’s “We’re Good To Go” kitemark which ensures they have followed all the guidance and legislation.

A one way system will be in place through the Museum and will be clearly marked for visitors to follow so they can safely experience the stunning collections on display.

Ticket prices are: £4.50 adults, £3.50 concessions, £2.00 children and Under 5s free.

As always, serving members of HM Forces can get in for free when they present their ID card, as can former members of the Shropshire Regiments.

Normal summer museum opening hours will operate:

Mon, Tue, Wed, Fri, Sat 10.30am to 5pm.
Sunday 10.30am to 4pm.
Closed Thursdays.
