Ludlow Castle: A real find for history buffs. This 11th century castle was built by a family that came to England with William the Conqueror. Although it has changed hands over the centuries, it has been privately owned by one family since the 1800’s! Serving also as a fortress, it is located on a high point overlooking Ludlow. It also has lodging and even weddings and other special events. Follow this link for more information.
Stokesay Castle: In contrast to the more historic Ludlow Castle, it is primarily a venue for events, fine dining and weddings. It has both a traditional ballroom and less typically an offering for “Caribbean Cookouts”!
