Just Visiting: Ludlow, Shropshire

Ludlow is a market town in England, close to the Welsh border. Historically it is extremely interesting as part of the town dates back to the 11th century. Overlooking the River Teme is a medieval castle, ruined but with much of it still accessible. There are roughly 500 listed buildings in Ludlow including many classic Tudor half-timbered buildings. It is also well known for it’s food.

This is a popular area with walkers; there are a variety of trails of all levels of difficulty and the scenery is stunning.

We decided on a 3 mile circular hike and made our way up to the top of the hill where we were rewarded with breath-taking views of the Shropshire countryside.

Famous for its eateries, Ludow at one point boasted three Michelin-starred restaurants. It hosts a food festival every year and we would love to return at the time of the festival to sample some of its culinary delights! Sadly we were only here for a day, but we would really like to return for some longer walks, and also some more time in the town itself.

As always, thanks you for reading!

Keep Exploring!

Best Regards,
