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. 
Disabled toilets can be found in the Shop, Outer area and Tea Rooms
Babychanging facilities are provided in the Tea Rooms
We welcome dogs in the Castle and the Tea Room's Courtyard as long as they are kept on a lead. You will find bowls of water around to ensure your 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
