Welcome to Shrewsbury

The pronunciation of the town's name has long been a hot topic. A charity debate hosted by University Centre Shrewsbury in 2015 declared 'shroos-bree' (rhyming with 'grew') the winner over the posher 'shrows-bree' (rhyming with 'grow'), as did a survey by the Shropshire Star, though you'll still hear both pronunciations in the town and across British media.
