Number of Visitors to Visitor Attractions - Acton Scott working farm, Ludlow Museum Resource Centre, Much Wenlock Museum, Shrewsbury Museum, Shrewsbury Castle and Shropshire Archives

Annual visitor figures have remained fairly static at Q1 17/18 (148,863) compared to Q1 16/17 (149,933). 

Despite this there has been a significant increase in the number of visitors to the Shrewsbury Museum, 27,475 at Q1 17/18 compared to 11,728 at Q1 16/17; this increase can be attributed to several factors.  Improved counting to make recording visitor numbers more accurate, the good weather has increased footfall to the information centre looking for things to do and there has also been an increased footfall due to selling tickets for festivals/events in the county.
