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. Make Ludlow Castle a centerpiece of your Ludlow vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Ludlow trip itinerary maker.

  • A wonderful day out. The castle had so much to offer and we spent a full day looking around. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Ludlow is a lovely place with lots to see and do. Amazing ice cream places. Definitely one to visit!
  • Loved it. Really interesting castle with a history that includes the princes that were murdered and ties to Henry VIII. Excellent place to take the kids as there is a cafe but also plenty of green space for a picnic. The views from the tower were amazing. Really enjoyable time in the market town.
