Sudeley Castle New Visitor Centre and Cafe

This season marks a special event for me and the team here at Sudeley – the arrival of our wonderful new Visitor Centre.

The new facilities include a new café, which means we now have two cafes on site. The Sudeley Cafe at the Visitor Centre will serve a variety of delicious cakes, hot drinks and mouth-watering light bites, and joins the Terrace Café located within the castle, which serves light refreshments as well as freshly-cooked meals. Visitors to the Sudeley Café can enjoy the benefits without having to pay for entry to the castle, which will be welcome news to the keen cyclists and walkers in the area!

One of the very best parts of visiting a beautiful castle like Sudeley is the chance to hunt for the perfect souvenir or keepsake with which to remember the day – and the new gift shop area is stocked with unique and exciting gifts for friends, family or yourself. Alongside our existing bestselling homewares, cosmetics, food & drink, toys and books, we also have sourced a range of new products from local suppliers which I’m sure will be hugely popular.

The shopping area includes Tulah’s Treasure Trove, my miniature dachshund’s fundraising initiative in which all items are donated from my own collections, along with generous contributions from Nicholas Granger of British Bespoke Auctions and many of my other friends.

Donations from the proceeds of sales of these items will be donated to The Cheltenham Animal Shelter and St Peter’s Youth Group in Winchcombe, so it’s an excellent way to find yourself a treasure and feel good about it! 

The Visitor Centre will be unveiled when the castle reopens for the 2016 season on Monday 7 March, and I look forward to seeing you all for what promises to be a spectacular year at Sudeley.
