Plenty in town. Bus to Bridgnorth and train to Ludlow. Roman site nearby didn't get to but sounds good.

In Shrewsbury itself - Castle, Abbey, Jail. Nearby - Attingham Park, Whittington Castle, Chirk Castle, Powis Castle, Erddig.

The walk alongside the River Severn between the English and Welsh bridges is a glorious location and you'll meet loads of other dog-walkers too.
Halfway along, you can enter the Quarry, a beautiful relaxing garden area full of lovely flowers and shrubs.
There are loads of good cafes and restaurants in the town itself.
However, if you find yourself heading north out of the town, there's a wonderful farm shop and cafe just off the Battlefield roundabout. It's called Battlefield 1403 and is well worth a visit.

Not sure where you are staying, but you can use the Park & Ride at Oxon Hall (west end of Shrewsbury) and the bus drivers will raise the barriers for you, if asked. It's only a 10 minute ride in for a couple of quid.

We stayed at Ebury Hill, north-east of Shrewsbury recently - former iron age hill fort, quarry, wartime camp, and now a camp site (but no facilities).  Splendid views.

You can walk from the camp site to Haughmond Abbey - quite extensive ruins, English Heritage (but entry was free).  Opposite that is Haughmond hill with forest walks.

Attingham Park is nice, but it was flooded a couple of weeks ago - might have gone down by now.

Shrewsbury itself is lovely, but a bit of a nightmare to drive through.

Enjoy.

Use park n ride and your bus passes, dead easy way to get into Shrewsbury town centre.
Meol Brace is one of the P and R, but there are others. We've done it from Meol Brace couple times.

If you're staying at Greenway, you might try going to Cardingmill Valley (NT) next to Church Stretton, on the way to Shrewsbury.  Walks galore, as long as you don't mind hills, and a nice enough cafe.
