Heritage Open Days - St Mary the Virgin


An ancient church with world famous stained glass with landscapes viewed by their creators

The spire of St Mary's is one of the tallest in England and for over 500 years it has dominated the skyline of Shrewsbury's old town.

The church is now the only complete medieval church in Shrewsbury. It dates from Saxon times and has beautiful additions from the twelfth-century onwards.

The church will be open Monday to Saturday, from 10am until 4pm.
Ask our volunteer questions and enjoy this wonderful medieval church and its exceptional stained glass collection

* A Volunteer will be onsite throughout but please enjoy a self-led visit.
