Ludlows dramatic Norman castle is a lasting testament to more turbulent times when the spectacular landscape of Shropshire and the Welsh Marches (a word derived from the Anglo Saxon Mearc meaning boundary) was witness to bloody disputes and battles. Now the town provides the ideal base to explore the dramatic history of Shropshire, Herefordshire and mid Wales. There are National Trust properties including Powis Castle and Wilderhope Manor, more than a dozen English Heritage sites such as the Castles at Clun and Stokesay, then there are beautiful Cities, towns and villages like Hereford (with the Cathedral and Mappa Mundi), Shrewsbury, Bridgnorth, and Much Wenlock.
