Visit Ludlow


Ludlow is a delightful small market town in south Shropshire, very near to the border with Wales. The townscape, based on the original medieval town plan, has fine examples of architecture from the Medieval, Tudor and Georgian periods. Foremost amoung these buildings are Ludlow Castle and the Parish Church of St Laurence.

As well as possessing a deep sense of history and links with the past , Ludlow is still very much a working town. A thriving town centre market takes place weekly on Mondays, Wednesday, Fridays and Saturdays each week with additional market on Thursdays and Sundays throughout the year (see the Calendar of Events for details) and a busy livestock market takes place year round on the outskirts of the town. The annual Festivals and May Fair are also great attractions. Ludlow has a wide variety of small independant retailers, where the traditions of good quality and friendly service still hold good. Many historic inns and taverns offer refreshment and accommodation, as well as numerous other restaurants, cafes, bed and breakfasts and holiday accomodation
