The Future Of Shrewsbury Prison
Shrewsbury Prison, the historic landmark with 200 years of history, is set to embark on an exciting new chapter. This iconic structure is being reimagined into a world-renowned tourist attraction, blending rich heritage with modern luxury and sustainability.
The transformation will introduce a 20-bedroom boutique hotel, offering guests a unique stay that combines the allure of history with contemporary comfort. Each room will be designed to provide an immersive experience, respecting the prison’s legacy whilst ensuring luxurious accommodation.
Shrewsbury Prison will also house a state-of-the-art conference facility. This space will include training rooms, meeting rooms, and a versatile event space, ideal for both corporate events and personal celebrations. The integration of advanced technology will ensure that every event is a resounding success.
A highlight of the development is the on-site restaurant, poised to cater for 120 covers. This culinary destination will offer a menu that combines local flavours with international cuisine, all set within the prison’s historic walls, providing a dining experience like no other.
In line with modern demands, the development includes a 72-space car park with provisions for EV charging, accessible parking, and bike racks, ensuring ease of access for all visitors. Furthermore, the incorporation of solar panels is a significant step towards achieving a net-zero carbon footprint, reflecting our commitment to sustainability.
CEO, Joel Campbell, said “Transforming Shrewsbury Prison into a world-class destination represents a unique and thrilling venture for us. This project is not just about preserving a piece of history; it’s about redefining the visitor experience. I am excited to see how this development will not only honour the past but also pave the way for a new era of sustainable tourism. The creation of the boutique hotel, state-of-the-art conference facility, and exquisite dining venue, all while moving towards net zero, is a testament to our commitment to innovation and excellence.
