I have seldom seen such a beautiful Church! A very well looked after Church at that, and the folk inside are very nice indeed.

“A lovely church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Tucked off the Main Street this is a beautiful church to visit. The stained glass windows and carvings are well worth viewing. It is open to the public and very welcoming. The heating has recently been fixed, so its nice and warm now. The shop has all sorts of great Christmas-related items.

“Absolutely Beautiful - worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Steeped in history, plenty helpers to give advice and guidance.
Fabulous shop with loads and loads of beautiful handmade toys, fantastic range of Christmas gifts and gorgeous nativity sets.
No charge but donations appreciated and the gift shop prices will surprise you - in a very good way.

“A large church in the heart of Ludlow and the Marches”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

A wonderful example of an English minster church. We were welcomed and then looked around at leisure. The high altar and misericords are wonderful to see. The only minus point concerns a very obvious new addition to the interior. It's a shame that someone decided to put a modern loo and kitchen into the main body of the church - it is really a most unfortunate addition, however useful to the congregation!
