Ellesmere is a market town in Shropshire, England. Located by the side of a mere, its most notable building is Ellesmere Old Town Hall, built in 1833.

The town lies on a branch of the Llangollen Canal, which eventually links it to Ellesmere Port, named after the town. The meres are popular with birdwatchers, many of whom visit to see herons nesting.
