There’s a ghostly feel to Shrewsbury with Halloween just around the corner and there are no shortages of gruesome tales associated with the town. With a long and gory history, Shrewsbury is said to be one of the most haunted towns in the UK.
Join us for a guided ghost tour around Shrewsbury, led by the Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery. Throughout this one and a half hour private tour, you’ll learn about the history of the town and the ghosts that haunt within the loop of the river, such as the ghost of Mrs Foxhall, said to haunt the Dingle where she was burned at the stake in 1647 for poisoning her husband.
The tour will start at 18.30 and last one and a half hours. We will then leave our guide behind and take a visit to some of the most haunted waterholes in Shrewsbury, with a spooky pub crawl planned and tables booked, so we can sit back and and enjoy the spooky atmosphere.
Fancy Dress is definitely encouraged!
Meetpoint: 18.20 outside Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery, The Square, Shrewsbury SY1 1LH
