Welcome to Ludlow Castle, an unusually complete range of medieval buildings with a varied history of Norman Fortress, Fortified Palace, Administrative Centre and finally the romantic ruin it is today.
Owned by the Earl of Powis Estates since the early eighteen hundreds, the castle was purchased to prevent its destruction. As well hosting thousands of day visitors throughout the year it is now central to several annual festivals and events that have become famous countrywide, thus increasing a well-documented inheritance and literary traditions. The castle holds its own family events during the school holidays with a growing portfolio that includes Guided Tours, Living History, Birds of Prey flying displays and a Medieval Christmas Fayre in November.
Castle House, the last grand mansion built in Ludlow, was sympathetically restored in 2006 and provides an artists' and jewellery-makers' shop, tea rooms serving traditional English teas, a number of 5* self-catering apartments for 3,4 and 7 night stays together with fine function rooms for hire.
