About the local area
Ludlow is a market town in Shropshire, England, steeped in the history of the Welsh Marches and arguably amongst the finest historic towns in England with a wealth of beautiful period buildings. You will find Ludlow 28 miles south of Shrewsbury and 23 miles north of Hereford. The town currently has a population of approximately 11,000. The centrepiece of the town is the dramatic medieval Ludlow Castle, perched on a cliff overlooking the River Teme. Ludlow is the gastronomic capital of Shropshire, with more Michelin Starred restaurants than any other town in the country.
However, good food isn’t the only reason to visit Ludlow, famously described by John Betjeman as, The loveliest town in England. With over 500 listed buildings, mainly Georgian or half-timbered, Ludlow is a feast for the eyes. There are many attractions, family days out and things to do within easy driving distance of Ludlow. Beautiful Shropshire and the neighbouring counties offer stately homes, the fascinating Ironbridge Gorge, medieval castles, and adventure-packed days for all.
