Ludlow boasts an inordinate number of medieval buildings given its size, and its culture and natural beauty are equally lauded.

Ludlow is a market town in Shropshire, England. The oldest part is the medieval walled town, founded in the late 11th century, centred on a small hill which lies within a bend of the River Teme, on its eastern bank.
