Overview

Ludlow Castle is an unusually complete range of medieval buildings with a varied history evident within its walls. We are host to a number of events that run between April and November, information of which is available at the local tourist information centre and on our website. Castle House was one of the last grand mansions built in Ludlow. It was sympathetically restored in 2006 by the current Earl of Powis and provides a range of Independent shops, Tea Rooms with an idyllic outside terrace during the summer months; function rooms that are available for civil ceremonies, weddings, parties, wakes, meetings The 3 no. self catering apartments are available for 3, 4 and 7 night stays. All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, well equipped kitchens and sitting/dining rooms and views of the castle that are unparalleled. The Tea Room is a traditional English tea room with a glazed Courtyard, Pantry, Study and Garden Terrace. It is child and dog friendly with a welcoming and enthusiastic team, serving something for everyone. There are loose-leaf teas, cafeteria coffees, fresh juices and quality wines. A range of freshly prepared cakes and cream teas are available all day. There is a lovely walk around the outside of the castle where you are surrounded by natural woodland and outstanding views of the castle walls, River Teme and Whitcliffe Common.

Really pleasantly surprised by how much there is to see, and imagine. Wonderful Norman chapel in the centre. 5 year old had a great time exploring. Indubitably significant site- where history veered off course for Catholic England, with the death of Prince Arthur. The Princes...More

This is a lovely castle that has more to see than initially thought. Some areas are in great shape and you can really feel the history around you. The view from the top of the tower both over the river and the town are lovely....More

Ludlow is such a lovely town (or is it a large village?) with the Castle at the centre of it. Great castle ruins with lots to see and very interesting history if you love the Wars of the Roses

Weather wise, I think we chose a bad day because there was a bit of rain and the ground was very muddy and a bit slippery in places, if only I'd know then I would have taken boots. Still a very nice castle to visit...More
