With its commanding clock tower, the award winning Shrewsbury Market Hall stands proudly between Shoplatch and Claremont Street.
Access into the Market Hall
Shrewsbury Market Hall is located in the middle of Shrewsbury, nestled between the busy shopping streets of Claremont Street and Shoplatch. A secure rack for bicycle parking is available directly outside the Market Hall.
There are two public entrances, and a combination of staircases and public lifts serve the upper floor where there are public toilets. We’re sorry but with the exception of Guide Dogs, dogs are not allowed in the market. If you need assistance please speak to one of the site services staff.
If you’re planning a road trip to Shrewsbury you will need to use the M54 / M6 network or the A49, A5, A53, A458 if approaching by A roads. There is plenty of parking in the centre of Shrewsbury.
