Often called the most beautiful town in England, Ludlow is home to breathtaking Georgian architecture. Being the largest town in South Shropshire, its rich history stems from being part of the Welsh Marches. It is also known for being a market town. So make sure you take a stroll through the outdoor market in Castle Square and maybe bring home a souvenir or two. Explore all the medieval attractions such as the Ludlow Castle, which was built as early as 1049, and the Stokesay Castle, a 13th-century manor house. Some museums in the area include the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust and the Ludlow Museum. Do not forget to pay the churches a visit as well, especially 12th-century St. Laurence’s Church. Nature walks can be done at Whitcliffe Common, Clee Hills, and nearby Downton Gorge National Nature Reserve. The River Teme is also a place to go fishing or boating. Bike Tours may also be arranged with Wheely Wonderful Cycling. Maximize the Ludlow experience by staying in with some locals at one of these Airbnb’s:
