Getting from London Euston to Shrewsbury by train

People travel from London to Shrewsbury to visit the castle, experience its medieval streets, and watch matches by local club Shrewsbury Town FC. You’re also likely to visit on business, thanks to the thriving tech sector in the town.

Shrewsbury is located in Shropshire and is its second-largest town, behind Telford. It’s only 10km from the Welsh border and has long had strong transportation links with the country, partly because it was a hub for the wool industry.

The “Heart of Wales” rail line starts in the town and heads south all the way to Swansea. Shrewsbury is at the end of a western branch of the West Coast Mainline, connected directly to Wolverhampton. You’ll likely step off the train approximately three hours after leaving London.

Most of Shrewsbury’s historic town centre is located in a huge meander of the River Severn and the station is also located next to the place where the two sides almost meet. Thanks to this, walking along the river will also get you to the station.
