History

Ludlow Castle is an incredible castle originating from 1066 where William fitzObern was granted Earl of Herefordshire and he built a range of castles along the Welsh and English Border including Ludlow Castle.

Owned by the crown during the Tudor and Stuart period, the castle was visited by Prince Arthur and Catherine of Aragon where unfortunately Prince Arthur died. Furthermore due to a multiplicity of court events and the Princes council being held there, the castle expanded considerably and became more Elizabethan in style and stature.

Yet the castle was abandoned in 1689 and quickly fell into ruin.

Ludlow Castle completed renovation in 2007 and still remains today as one of England's finest medieval ruins and the perfect place for a fairytale wedding for history enthusiasts.
