By train, Shrewsbury is only an hour from Birmingham and Birmingham is only 30 minutes from Coventry. My idea of a nice day out.

No, that isn't a castle (photo below). That is Shrewsbury's mainline train station and tower built in 1848. It has a surprise..........

When you go through the door and up the stairs your are not inside a magnificent building but outside again. What a surprise. The view here is looking back to the station tower (on the right) and there is a hint of Shrewsbury Castle on the left.
When we visited the station it was neat to see a very long line of Pullman Coaches soon to take visitors on a steam train adventure around Wales and England.
One more stop tomorrow and then it is back to Coventry.
