Getting Here

The Museum is inside the main hall of Shrewsbury Castle, just up the hill from the railway station or a short distance down Castle Street from the Town Centre. Travelling towards Castle Gates from the station, you’ll find the Castle drive entrance on the left hand side of the road just before St. Nicholas Bar and Grill. Our Postcode is SY1 2AT

West Midlands Railway offers a frequent and fast service from major cities, including Birmingham, Wolverhampton and Hereford to Shrewsbury Railway Station. Visit to book tickets.

Local bus timetables are available here.

We only have 2 parking spaces for disabled visitors, so please call 01743 358516 to advise us of your requirements.

If you are travelling by car we recommend using the Park and Ride services – the bus stops are a very short walk from the Castle; or find a car park here.

Visitors with long journeys are advised to phone 01743 358516 for up-to-date opening information, especially during winter months or following bad weather. Shrewsbury and the surrounding areas are prone to the River Severn flooding which often disrupts local and regional road travel.
