Located only eight miles from the picturesque Broadway, Sudeley Castle & Gardens is a much-loved family home as well as a popular visitor attraction with award-winning gardens.
Covid-19 update: Open from 11am, not 10am. Last admission is 3pm, not 4pm. Season closes 1 November 2020. Limited food options in cafes, limited seating areas. Tickets booking online only. Some room closures. Cashless payment only.
A must-see on any visit to The Cotswolds, the castle has played an important role in England’s history, boasting royal connections that stretch back over 1,000 years.
Visitors are offered the chance to walk in the footsteps of past kings and queens including Richard III, Elizabeth I and Lady Jane Grey. It is also the only private castle in England to have a queen buried within its grounds.
The last of Henry VIII’s six wives, Katherine Parr lived and died in the castle. She is now entombed in a beautiful 15th century church found within the gardens.
Inside, the castle contains many fascinating treasures including the highly-anticipated ‘20 Treasures of Sudeley’. A collection of artefacts and works of art of great historical importance which include Katherine Parr’s love letters, lacework reputedly made by Anne Boleyn, bed hangings made for Marie Antoinette and Charles I’s personal beer jugs.
Sudeley Castle’s magnificent gardens are world-renowned, providing variety and colour from spring through to autumn. The centrepiece is the Queens Garden, so named because four of England’s queens – Anne Boleyn, Katherine Parr, Lady Jane Grey and Elizabeth I – once admired the hundreds of varieties of roses found in the garden.
A pheasantry, adventure playground with picnic area, gift shop and Terrace Café in the banqueting hall complete the perfect day out.
