Times & Admission

Welcome to Ludlow Castle, a romantic ruin of what was once a Welsh Border stronghold and power base for Irish Conquest & manoeuvres, a home to Kings and Queens, the Headquarters for the Council of the Marches and the tourist attraction it is today.

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 and Castle Kitchen. Baby-changing facilities are provided in Castle Kitchen.

We welcome dogs into the Castle and Castle Kitchen courtyard & terrace 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.

The Castle is closed for Festival set ups and Christmas Day
