Ludlow

Ludlow began in the 12th century as a planned, walled, town surrounding the 11th century castle famous for its ownership by Marcher lords such as Roger Mortimer who usurped Edward II and as the place where Prince Arthur died in 1502, leaving both the crown and his widow, Catherine of Aragon, to his younger brother, Henry VIII.

Modern Ludlow is known for excellent food in both its restaurants, pubs, independent shops, markets, and festivals.

The parish church of St. Laurence is impressive and hosts a stone-carving festival.

The Ludlow Food and Drink Festival is held in September. The Spring Festival is in April. The Medieval Christmas Fayre is in November
