walk in the footsteps of kings and queens
Set against the dramatic backdrop of the Cotswolds, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Sudeley Castle & Gardens is just eight miles from Broadway.
It has played an important role in the turbulent and changing times of England’s past, with royal connections that stretch back over 1000 years. Today it is a much loved family home and popular visitor attraction.
Inside, the castle contains many fascinating treasures from ancient Roman times to the present day. Outside, the castle is surrounded by award-winning gardens and a breathtaking 1,200 acre estate – all in the heart of the Cotswolds.
Sudeley Castle & Gardens is also the only private castle in England to have a queen buried within its grounds – Katherine Parr, the last of Henry VIII’s six wives. Today our visitors can explore the beautiful 15th Century church where she lies entombed.

We currently have a specialist ‘rope access’ company doing vital maintenance to the Dungeon Tower. This means the Castle Entrance has moved to the Terrace and safety tape is surrounding the tower. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
