Top tips for renting a car in Shrewsbury

  • Shrewsbury is a town in the country of Shropshire through which the River Severn flows. There are about nine bridges which cross the river and the best way to enjoy the spectacular views they offer is with car hire in Shrewsbury. With it you’re in command of your freedom and afforded the convenience to roam whenever you please. The city of Cardiff lies 110 miles south via the A49, while the city of Hull is situated 163 miles north-east along the A38.
  • The most convenient airport for a flight and location for car hire in Shrewsbury is Liverpool Airport (LPL). If you don’t have an advance reservation, there are providers such as National, Avis and Hertz, among others, who can furnish you with a vehicle. The car hire centre is situated near the short-stay car park on the ground floor, right across the street from the terminal building, so no shuttle is necessary.
  • The A5 and A49 are the main traffic arteries for outbound and inbound traffic to Shrewsbury. These spawn several secondary roads like the A2064 and A5112 flowing towards the town centre. Along such roadways you’re likely to experience gridlock during the morning and evening rush hours. The heart of the town surrounded by the River Severn is the cultural, retail and administrative centre where pedestrian and cycle activity will be high on a daily basis. Summer trade between June and August will cause moderate increases in overall traffic conditions.
  • Along with the A2064 and A5115, you can expect major vehicular traffic along the A528 and A5191 roadways from 07:00 to 08:30 and again from 18:00 to 20:30. The A5191 mimics the river’s path before it intersects with the A528 just before the Welsh Bridge, making this a focal point for congestion during these periods. Other trouble spots include the English Bridge on the opposite side of town. Anticipate moderate to high traffic congestion between the hours of 13:00 and 15:00 in downtown areas due to retail and tourist activity.
