Tuesday 19 December - Visit to Ludlow Market and Food Centre returning via Berrington Hall

Leave RAF 9 a.m - Return 4 p.m - £16

We all enjoyed our previous visit to Ludlow Food Market, so we thought once again it would be a good opportunity to stock up with lovely things and sumptuous puddings for Christmas. We hope to have a good hour here before moving on to Ludlow itself where we can explore the Tinsel Market, all the interesting independent shops and have some lunch before calling at Berrington Hall on our way home to experience their Georgian Christmas.
