“Tower workout”
Reviewed 27 April 2013

This church is like many... full of history and pleasure to sit and lose yourself in thought. There are lots of stained glass windows, wonderful architecture and of course... no church of such quality would be complete without a sarcophagus or two. The highlight for me however, was being able to climb the Tower to the roof... what wonderful views and well worth the £3.00 per adult. A great workout too with over 200 winding steps.

“Tour of tower”
Reviewed 16 April 2013

Lovely church with plenty of interest and well worth waling up the tower for the magnificent view off surrounding countryside and views over the town-great variety of rooves and architecture. However, with narrow steep steps, you need to be fit! Cost of £3 for visit to tower where can also see bells on way up!

This is one of the loveliest parish churches in England. The music and choir never fail to delight. One of the great joys of Ludlow!

“Inspiring visit - the cathedral of the Marches!”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

This church is said to have the ashes of AE Houseman buried just outside its walls. Staff on duty were very friendly and helpful. The stained glass windows in the church are amazing. On our visit it was a bitterly cold day whilst the church was warm and welcoming, well worth a visit
