Constructed in the 11th century, Ludlow Castle, retains the spark of its former medieval glory. You can explore many parts of the castle, which has changed hands and owners throughout the centuries, on your own. Information at the site is lacking, so if you’re interested in the history of the place, be sure to read up in advance. But with preserved areas and a bit of imagination, you can envision how the castle might have been used in days of yore. Climb one of the towers to enjoy the view and take tea by the entrance to bring you back into the 21st century.

Well preserved castle, dating from 1000AD. Situated in Ludlow town, on the border of England and Wales. V interesting if you like castles. You need to be fit and nimble to get the most out of it: you get the best views by going up the spiral staircases. Nothing much else to do other than potter about and look at the ruins, but worth a visit.
Lovely place. We had a chance to attend the food festival and the Christmas market and both events were great. Castle itself is magnificent, well taken care of.
