Lovely church right in the centre of Ludlow, we approached it from a tiny unassuming alleyway which made its sheer scale even more surprising! Beautifully maintained, although the temporary (I think) generator for the heating system seemed a little at odds with the surroundings, even...More

We were really surprised when we went into this church, it was magnificent. Be prepared to be blown away. It was as ornate as a cathederal but simple at the same time. Would have loved to have attended a service but only on holiday sadly.

So much to see in this stunning medieval church. They were removing the pews when we visited to open up the space for concerts. We will return to see the finished effect. Helpful and friendly guides. Plenty of variety in nearby shops.

I had been here on a very brief visit some time ago, so was pleased when asked to play in a concert here just before Christmas. It is a lovely building with many fine features. Even more, it has good acoustics for classical music.
