Bridgnorth Tourist Information & Visitor Guide

Waterloo Terrace
At the end of the High Street is Waterloo Terrace, as noted by the cast iron signage above the opticians.

Railway Street, Bridgnorth

To the right is Listley Street where the Tourist Information Centre is located and worth a call for you to pick up local leaflets and information. On your way look down the narrow lane on you left, it is a pretty little street called Railway Street.

Return to Waterloo Terrace

On your right note the ornate multi-coloured brick building on the corner. This building was built in 1855 in an Italian style and was intended to be a covered market place for the street traders. However the traders did not want to move indoors, fearing the move from their location on the High Street would be bad for business, so it was never actually used as a market place. It did house the first cinema in town (there still exists a cinema on Whitburn Street) and it was once a dance hall. Today it is home to The Childhood & Costume Museum - a lovely collection of childhood days gone by and memorabilia .

Proceed south past the museum and take a left onto East Castle Street. Look out for the two cast iron signs with pointing extended arm - East Castle Street, St. Mary’s Church - one cuff is frilled, one cuff pressed.
