On 29th February 2012, the extra 1 day in February is known as lunar leap day. We decided to visit Shrewsbury, Shropshire. From my home, it took about one and half hours to reached there. Shrewsbury is a historic market town with unaltered medieval street. When we reached the town, in front of the tourist centre there is a car park. We walk along the town centre, most of the shops are made of timber framing from the 15th and 16th century. We followed the sign boards pointing the directions of the Abbey and Bear Steps.
We came across the Bear steps and the Bear house. Up the bear steps we there was the abbey. It was closed for renovation. Then further up to the narrow paths leaded the way to Castle & Regimental Museum. As we walked back to pick our car up, we came across this row of Ireland's Mansion circa 1900 shop houses which located at the High Street.
Also came across rows of high street posh boutique shops and love the displays of the latest fashions of black and white stripes dresses and blouses displays. We had spent more than 2 hours strolling the town centre and had to rush back to our car because the parking ticket had expired.
