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.

Unsure of what we would see for the price. Especially looking at it from a distance it doesn't seem very much. We didn't see anyone walking round it so we didn't bother going in

Was a little unsure as this is the 1st time our kids have used an audio tour, I thought they would get bored. Not a bit of it we all enjoyed wondering around listening to the commentary, very informative. Would recommend

Fine example of it's kind and I recommend the excellent audio guide for £3. Gives a lot of extra information and gives the walls and surrounding a lot of colour. View from the tower is simply amazing! Defenitly worth a visit!

It was £5 to get in and it was worth every penny. The ruin had an almost ethereal beauty walking around it. The view from the towers was spectacular across Shropshire. I would highly recommend it.

Visited castle yesterday! Substantial ruins which enable us to fill in the gaps and allow us to imagine the history of the castle as we know it! Well presented and maintained! Fairly priced. A worthwhile visit!!
