Described by John Betjeman as “the loveliest town in England”, this Shropshire market town is situated close to the Welsh border, in the delightful hilly countryside known as the Welsh Marches. Nestled on a cliff above the River Teme, and beneath the Clee Hills, the town is home to over 500 listed buildings, which include some superb examples of mediaeval and Tudor half-timbered buildings. The parish church, St Laurence Church, is the largest in the county, and it is also the custodian of the ashes of A.E. Housman, the poet who wrote “A Shropshire Lad”.

Ludlow came into existence after Ludlow Castle was started in 1086, and the castle’s varied architecture reflects its long history. Originally a Norman Fortress, it was extended over the centuries to become a fortified Royal Palace. Open to visitors, it is now the host of many of the towns events and festivals throughout the year. Milton’s “Comus” was first performed in the Great Hall here in 1634, and the tradition is continued each summer when a play is performed in the open air as part of the Ludlow Arts Festival.

The town centre is thriving, with a market, speciality food shops, inns and restaurants. Ludlow has made a name as a centre for gastronomy, and every September the Ludlow Food and Drink Festival takes place. This three-day event allows local, small producers to show and sell their wares.

Other attractions in the area include: Ludlow Museum, which provides a history of the town; Stokesay Court, a Victorian country house built by Christian evangelist and philanthropist, John Derby Allcroft; The Ludlow Assembly Rooms, an arts and cinema centre, presenting live music, theatre, films, comedy and talks; Ludlow Leisure Centre, with swimming pool and fitness suites; Berrington Hall, a classic English country house; Acton Scott Historic Working Farm; Mickey Millers Family Play Barn; and Westhope College Gardens.

Other places located within a few miles of Ludlow include Leominster, Wall-Under-Heywood, Tenbury Wells, Craven Arms, and Bucknell.
