A listed building which was once the home of the first of Henry VIII's six wives is up for sale in Shropshire.
Catherine of Aragon, Henry's first Queen of England, was among former notable residents at Castle Lodge in Ludlow, said property firm Balfours.
Thomas Seckford, an official who served Elizabeth I, also lived at the medieval 12-bedroom town house near the castle.
Trip Advisor reviewers, who paid £3 to visit the home, called it a "bit weird but interesting" and "impressive".

The building is up for sale for an undisclosed sum, but five years ago its price tag was nearly £1m.
Balfours said Castle Lodge was "one of Ludlow's finest buildings" and dated from the 13th Century. The grade II* listed building was re-built in 1580.
