Berkeley is a stunning mediaeval castle which has been the home of the Berkeley family since 1153.
Tall towers, deep dungeon, grand and gruesome: homely and horrid. Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn & Elizabeth I stayed here; Edward II was murdered here, Shakespeare wrote ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ for a Berkeley family wedding.
Free castle tours reveal tapestries, paintings and fine silver. Terraced gardens filled with unusual plants, tropical Butterfly House, picnic area and yurt restaurant. Groups welcomed with your own Guided Tour.
Location for the filming of The White Princess and the BBC’s adaptation of Wolf Hall & Poldark.
Family activities include Arts & Crafts, Archery, Jester Skills, Knight School, Wild Play Area, Dressing-up and much more!
