By car

Our route from the M54/A49 (south) leads to the English Bridge, Thomas Telford's masterpiece, which spans the River Severn and acts as Shrewsbury's "front door". As you cross this lovely bridge, you will be approaching one of Britain's best preserved hill-fort towns. Set in an elevated position, almost completely surrounded by the wide banked Severn, and guarded by a huge castle, Shrewsbury was almost impenetrable in the past. Thankfully, things are very different these days - they've even laid on two car parks immediately after the bridge! Park in one of these, and complete your journey up "Wyle Cop" to Creative Audio on foot. Just so that you know, the name "Wyle Cop" is derived from the old Welsh word for "way to" and the Saxon word "Cop" for hill / slope (a similar derivation is used for the slope of a football terrace, notably Liverpool's 'Kop'). Something to remember when you reach the top and your lungs start to feel like they're breathing molten lead! On your way up the hill, you will have passed another of Shrewsbury's landmarks - the world famous Tanners wine shop. After visiting Creative Audio, if time (and money!) permit, it's well worth popping into Tanners via their stunning Tudor archway, and paying a visit to the wonderfully atmospheric Dickensian cellars that have made them so famous. 

Continuing our journey, take a right-hand turn at the top of the hill (opposite the Lion Hotel) into Dogpole (I'm sure that street name must be derived from some pretty interesting Saxon, but we'd probably better not go into it!). Carry on for about 100 yards and you'll find us in our "Church" on the left hand side.

By Train

Shrewsbury's magnificent Victorian Station is just a stone's throw from Creative Audio. Simply turn left out of the station, walk up the hill past the imposing castle, continue on past the library (where Darwin studied), follow the road as it turns left by the Post Office, and you'll find us about 400 yards down on the right hand side, just a few doors down from Cromwell's wine bar (handy!).

By Bus

With a bus stop directly across the road from our shop, Creative Audio is perfectly positioned if you wish to use Shrewsbury's ever popular "park & ride" scheme.

See you there!!
