Me and my husband had a good day here walking around and exploring the castle, however, I was very disappointed with the fact that there is almost no signage.
When the first born son of the monarch was born, they were sent here to learn how to govern this small kingdom, so that when the time came, the young King would be able to run the country from London. But there was literally nothing to read! So disappointing. Henry VIII has stayed here before. Also Mary I and Edward V (who never was, as he was murdered in the tower with his brother) all lived here. You would not come away from Ludlow Castle learning something new, or why the castle is so important to our history.
On the plus side, the castle ruins are great to look at. If you use your imagination, you can see what it would have looked like several hundred years ago. Also if you can manage the walk up to the top of the castle, the view is amazing! You will get to see the castle view from above for miles around.
