Pretty much nothing to see here. 20ft x 20ft tower, that's it. It was closed during the holidays!! Maybe it's always closed? Can't be much inside anyway. Not exactly a York or Chester. As disappointing as the rest of Shrewsbury.

The tower is worth a visit as it is midway between St Chad's Church and the Roman Catholic Cathedral (both of which are outstanding). The town walls were built around 1220 after Shrewsbury was sacked by the Welsh and this watch tower was added in...More

We found The Town Walls Tower on one of our walks around Shrewsbury. It looks to be well kept. The Tower looks rather small. Very interesting to see The Town Walls!

I walked alongside the walls after visiting the abbey and on the way to The Quarry. Some interesting features but not a lot to see.

As a member of the National Trust I found this in their handbook. Disappointed to find it only opens on 6 days (3 weekends) of the year (but that teaches me to do better research). Still it was worth a visit and am determined to...More

Unlike other towns in the UK that have their town walls intact, Shrewsbury's have been built around. They're also incomplete, but what is there is very good, and enjoyable to see.
