We called into the church for a look around (I know Mark the last Vicar). What a beautiful peaceful place of worship. Well worth taking half an hour to look around, pause and pray.

We called in on chance because bell ringers were ringing some beautiful tolls. We spent a very happy half hour wandering round this beautiful Church. A very friendly and helpful chap spent time talking about his Church. Well worth a visit

I’ve been to a couple of concerts here – The Sixteen; Shrewsbury Choral Society. Good acoustics, reasonable comfortable seating (for a church), nice organ.

This church was designed by the same guy as St Paul's in London. Fantastic architecture and if your lucky the organ player will be there too!

Take a trip to the graveyard and search for the headstone from the Christmas carol film. As it was filmed in Shrewsbury the headstone lays in the same place as it was in the film.

Drop by, quite unusual, but beautiful. On a cold January Sunday, better than the cathedral. It was open!

Worth a visit just to see the tombstone of 'Scrooge' used in the film 'A Christmas Carol'. I had no idea this was here, so it was a marvellous surprise.
