Couples Lock their Love in Shrewsbury

Romance is in the air in Shrewsbury as couples have been sealing their love in time for Valentine’s Day using a one-off ‘love lock’  as an expression of their affection.

The love lock craze, which started in Paris and has now swept the globe, has been embraced by Shrewsbury BID this week, who launched a social media competition to find 25 romantic couples to win their red, heart-shaped love locks.

Ann Ditella, Shrewsbury BID Board Director and owner of Porterhouse said: “Shrewsbury is a truly romantic place to visit and stay, with plenty of secret shuts and passages to walk through and steal a kiss, relaxing riverside walks and we even have a Moroccan spa. At night there are cosy restaurants and bars, where couples can enjoy cocktails and dinner and plenty of unique and independent places to stay in for a wonderful weekend away.”
