We began our day at Shrewsbury Castle where we admired the historical estate and layout of the castle grounds. As we made our way across the street towards the Shrewsbury Library, we fancied a picture in front of the Charles Darwin statue where I couldn’t help striking a pose. We continued meandering through cute little side streets and made our way to Butcher Row. We then came across St. Mary’s Square, the Harry Potter themed store and medieval street Fish Street. As it was a snowy day we had to grab a cuppa tea at the River View Cafe before we headed back to check out of our hotel.

My sunglasses are Polaroid PLD6043/S The PLD6043/S is a round simplistic shape that gives a slightly retro vibe. The combination of matte and shiny acetate along the front of the piece gives a vibrant and exciting look.

Once we checked out we walked through the quarry over a footbridge to meet our family friend for lunch at the popular Shrewsbury destination, The Peach Tree. But before lunch, we perused the historical Shrewsbury Abbey, which is situated across the road from the restaurant.
