The local area guide to living in Ludlow

Ludlow is a historic, beautiful market town in Shropshire. It has a population of just under 11,000 people, making it one of the larger towns in the county, and has a significant history relating to Wales's relationship with England.

It lies between the rivers Corve and Teme, and the town includes the ancient medieval walled town which dates back to the Norman conquest. This part of town is raised on a small hill, with Ludlow Castle on the peak. Ludlow's history is clear to see, with 500 listed buildings providing fantastic examples of medieval and Tudor architecture. It's no wonder Sir John Betjeman described it as 'probably the loveliest town in England.'

It's not just the architecture that makes it beautiful either. It is surrounded by fantastic countryside, including the Mortimer Forest and Clee Hills.

Throughout the medieval period Ludlow was a significant market town, particularly thriving on the wool and cloth trades but home to many more. These trades had died down by the 17th century, but the town still attracted money and had several pubs, coaching houses and hotels to accommodate travelers. This laid the groundwork for the town becoming what it is today - a very popular tourist destination. It now has a fantastic community atmosphere and offers some attractive walking and cycling routes across the Welsh Marches.
