Ghost Tours are Back: Brave our most Haunted Town at Night!
20 Sep 2023

Are you brave enough to venture out on the streets of Shrewsbury with our museum's brilliant Ghost Tours? Starting on Oct 5th, 2023 they're truly spooktacular! Read editor Katy Rink's review of these brilliant guided tours here. 

Shrewsbury has a reputation for being one of the most haunted towns in the UK (it's because all the spirits are trapped within the loop of the river, apparently!).

There are some truly fabulous and hair-raising tales to be told, as our editor Katy Rink discovered on a ghost tour last October. Read her review HERE

These spooky tours, organised by Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery and starting form The Square, are back on this autumn. You'll enjoy discovering hidden corners of our historic town and braving the mysterious shuts and passages (dark alleyways) that crisscross our streetscapes - and you'll hear some terrifying stories from our real history too!

The Shrewsbury Ghost Tours operate from Thursday, October 5th until Thursday, November 2nd 2023 from 7pm to 8.30pm. Suitable for all ages (minimum age 8+). Well behaved dogs are welcome on a lead. These tours usually sell out fast (because they are really good!) so get your skates on. Booking is via the museum website HERE
