When arriving by car there are a number of Car Parks to choose from.


We have a car park with limited spaces directly opposite the prison (SY1 2HP). This is a customer only car park and costs £4.50 to park all-day, so you don't have to worry about moving your car straight after your tour! This car park closes at 6pm.

The closest public car park is approximately 50 meters from the prison. Located on Howard Street, it can be found using the following postcode: SY1 2LF. Car parking charges are £5.40 all-day.


Alternatively you will find a Car Park on Frankwell Street, SY3 8RE, approximately 0.7 miles from The Dana. It will take about 10 minutes to walk to The Dana, over the River Severn and through the picturesque town of Shrewsbury.


Or you will find Riverside Meadows Car Park, SY1 1PL, about 0.5 miles from The Dana; a short 6 minute walk away.

By Train

If you are arriving by train, Shrewsbury Train Station (SHR) is situated directly opposite Shrewsbury Prison. Exit the train station and head up the steps situated on the path to the left, cross over the train tracks using the Dana bridge and you cannot miss us! 


By Coach

If arriving by coach you will be dropped off outside the front of the prison, your coach will then park in one of the local coach parks and return to pick you up after your visit from outside the prison. Your coach driver will provide specific details on the day.
