Sunny Day in Ludlow, England

English Countryside - Ludlow

Named after the rapid water flow and a hill in Shropshire there is an enchanting town called Ludlow. I was recommended to visit Ludlow by a few people during my trip down south. Since I already had a chance to visit Oxfordshire, Ludlow was next on my list. Blessed with gorgeous weather, much sunnier than in Aberdeen, I did not need much convincing to stay outdoors. How much I love days where I can wear a dress, shoes, and grab a bag on my way out.

The best way to describe Ludlow would be a charming medieval town, where history and architecture is embraced. What is one of the highlights from my trip to Ludlow in south Shropshire? It has to be handmade pistachio ice creams.

Ludlow Castle is located in the oldest part of town overlooking Ludlow. The castle is open for the public to explore and with an impressive green space it is also used for various events such as historical re-enactments and weddings. If you are planning a wedding, read all my posts about weddings here.

The grounds of Ludlow Castle are bigger than expected. Instead of spending the planned hour in the castle somehow I managed to be there for 3,5h! Fortunately I was not in a rush and I could take my time and enjoy the sun.

After exploring Ludlow’s Castle it was time to discover the rest of Ludlow. Walking down the streets was like moving back in time. There was a farmers’ market in the middle of Ludlow with fresh produce. It gave me a real countryside feeling. It is a shame that Aberdeen does not have anything like that available throughout the week. I could not resist red, juicy, shiny cherries. They were not only mouth watering but also very budget friendly.

You can walk around all day and stop in one of the numerous pubs, cafes, unique shops, and restaurants. Stop by in Bakers of Tower Street, upstairs you will find a small, rooftop terrace with a few tables. Order scones, sit down and just enjoy the tranquillity of a moment.

Time for a well deserved break upstairs. Scones, clotted cream, hot chocolate - perfect afternoon. I do not need much more than that.

  1. Gorgeous post as always, Iga! Your photos are always stunning. I've never heard of Ludlow but I'd love to visit the countryside. Sounds like a beautiful, quaint place with lots of culture.

  2. Great, so I stumble over your blog and find myself crying. Don't worry, your post was lovely! But Ludlow is really close to the little village where my nan lives and I really miss her as I haven't seen her in a while. I live in Germany so I can't just get on a bus and go there and seeing those lovely photos of pretty Ludlow made me tear up. Whenever I am over with my family we go there a couple of times and I love it. So it is great to see someone exploring that little town and enjoying it!
    You were so lucky that the weather was this lovely!
    Happy Saturday btw!
    Love,

    1. Scone with jam and cream always wins with any competition! Afternoon tea is one of my favourite ideas from Great Britain. I can say it's in personal top five. Iga x
