Ludlow Food Festival


Wheelchair and mobility scooters access

All events in Ludlow Castle and most other venues are suitable for wheelchair and mobility scooters access. The entrance to the Castle itself has a rough cobbled surface and a wheelchair user may require assistance - readily available on the spot - for this short section. Some shops have entrance steps but again assistance is readily available.

Wheelchair hire - we do have a limited number of light use wheelchairs that can be hired over the weekend with a £30 deposit left until their return.

Disabled toilets can be found at the car park off Castle Square, and in the Castle during the Food and Drink Festival.

Disabled car park spaces (for disabled badge holders) can be found in the car park off Castle Square.


There are baby changing and feeding facilities available within the festival; these are based within small marquees and contain a table and chairs for your use. There is also a small amount of disposable changing mats and wipes available for your use, if needed, along with sanitizing gel.


Well-behaved dogs, on a lead, are allowed in the castle grounds...But NOT in any marquee or anywhere where food preparation is taking place (except guide dogs).

Festival venues other than the castle each have their own policy regarding dogs, but of course food shops do not normally permit dogs to enter.

Dog Crèche: there will be a dog crèche inside the castle operating between the hours of 10am and 6pm on Saturday, and 10am and 5pm on Sunday.  A charge of £2 per hour will be donated to


Shop ‘n Drop…why not leave your purchases at the Festivals' charity run shopping crèche (located at the entrance/exit of the Festival in the castle grounds) and pick them up later!


Toilets + Disabled toilet facilities can be found at the car park off Castle Square, and in the Castle during the Spring Festival
