Ludlow Castle is an outdoor ruin and whilst we are pushchair and wheelchair friendly there will be some areas of the Castle that are inaccessible. The surface areas are cobbles, grass and chippings. The ground in the inner bailey is of varying levels and can be difficult to navigate. The majority of rooms and towers are not easy, however, you can get around the judges lodgings and take in the magnificent fireplaces which are repeated in other rooms. Interpretation boards are accessible. 
Other facilities provided are disabled and babychanging toilets. 
Disabled in the Shop, Outer area and Tea Rooms
Babychanging in the Outer area by the gates
We are dog friendly in the Castle and the Tea Rooms Courtyard as long as Dogs are kept on a lead. You will find bowls of water around to ensure our four legged friends are well cared for during your visit
 Please note: A few times a year we close the Castle to the public for special events and festivals set up. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by castle closures; these are necessary to allow our events programme to proceed
