The historic, medieval market town of Ludlow is situated on the River Teme amidst some of the most outstanding countryside and walking in Shropshire. It boasts more than 500 listed buildings and provides a fascinating range of architecture including Ludlow Castle which is over 900 years old and is one of the first stone castles to be built in England. Today the castle is open all year round and hosts a wide range of events including outdoor theatre, food, art and literature festivals and many antique and art fairs. 

Below the castle, the Millennium Green offers a large public riverside green and weir and provides excellent indoor and outdoor dining facilities at the Green Cafe located right on the riverside. At the right time of year you may be lucky enough to spot salmon leaping the weir on their journey upstream.

Ludlow is a gourmet’s paradise and a shopper’s dream. The town boasts a wide array of excellent pubs and restaurants as well as a number of exclusive boutique style clothes and gift shops.

Ludlow Markets
Ludlow has held street markets since the twelfth century. Nowadays, a traditional open-air market takes place in the town square every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday throughout the year. More than forty stalls selling a range of goods including fresh produce, cheeses, books and a selection of local crafts are on offer and most Sundays see the market stalls being used to host antique or flea markets
