Food Festivals

18th September 2013

The annual Ludlow Food festival, held last weekend (13 – 15 September), attracted almost 20,000 visitors despite terrible weather on Sunday.

Ludlow is the food capital of Shropshire, with 2 michelin starred restaurants, several AA rosette restaurants, great pubs and tea shops, a thriving farmers market, a local brewery and a host of excellent local, independent specialist food shops. The Festival is so popular that accommodation is booked up at least a year or more in advance and the town is very very busy over the festival, but a great place to visit at all times of year.

Our South Shrophire Walking Holiday or the National Byway cycling holiday both have an overnight stop in Ludlow and additional nights can be added here to spend a little more time exploring the castle, museum and tasting some of the excellent food.

Cheshire Food Festival will be held over weekend 21 – 22 September at Arley Hall land promises to be another fine foodie weekend. Cheshire is well known for its farming and excellent local produce and also has many fine restaurants, great pubs and tea shops. Byways Breaks Peckforton Hills and Country Inns cycling holiday visits some of the finest country pubs in the area and passes farmshops, tea shops as well as an award winning cheese and ice cream farm.
