About Ludlow

Nestling on the banks of the rivers Corve and Theme Ludlow is a joyous town to visit at any time of year.

There are many buildings of early origin and soaring above them all can be seen the 135ft tower of the towns 15th century parish church.

The continuing prosperity of Ludlow owes much to the fine Georgian architecture evidenced at its best in Broad Street which is strewn with wonderful dwellings from that great architectual period. Two very fine black and white properties are the 17th century Feathers Hotel (where tea by a roaring log fire is definately not to be missed) and the Readers House.

It is thought that Ludlows earliest building is the castle which from as early as 1085 occupied a strategic position in the contentious boarder country known as the Marcher Lands.

There is some very pretty countryside around this area and Ludlow is very much set amid the gentle shropshire hills. None-the-less, this is abustling little town full of lively and interesting shops, restaurants and pubs. The square in the centre of the town plays host to a regular monthly Antique market where traders from all over gather to sell pieces of every description, the variety is such that you can purchase anything from an antique egg cup to a fine four poster bed.
