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.

There are still some complete sections of the castle & the information boards provide a good idea of what the castle looked like when it was complete. The only downside was there is no plastic walkways or footpaths over the grass so it was very muddy with pools of water when we went in February - definitely need boots!
Wonderful, traditional castle in a delightful setting. Sadly, we didn't have time to explore the inside on this occasion, but the exterior, dry moat area is really well cared for and such a pretty walk. Looked beautiful in the spring sunshine. There was a lovely happy atmosphere and lots of people were wandering around with their well behaved dogs it was lovely! One tip .... take a walk down to the bridge and look up at the castle. Worth the walk!
