Stokesay Castle

Step into the finest and best-preserved fortified medieval manor house in England. Discover the great hall, unchanged for over 700 years. Spot characters carved in the timbers of the 17th-century gatehouse and climb to the top of a fairy-tale tower for breathtaking views of the Shropshire Hills.

Stokesay Castle was constructed at the end of the 13th century by Laurence of Ludlow, who at the time was one of the richest men in England. It remains a treasure by-passed by time, one of the best places to visit in England to experience what medieval life was like.

Today the castle has been carefully restored and there is plenty to do here on a family day out. Don’t miss the stunning views from the gable windows of the great hall, the family trail to find hidden treasure and our tearoom with beautiful views over the Shropshire countryside.
