Sudeley Castle & Gardens
Set against the dramatic backdrop of the Cotswolds, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Sudeley Castle & Gardens is just eight miles from Broadway & Cheltenham.
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.
Redevelopment of Visitor Centre: From the 7th of September the Visitor Centre will be demolished and moved to a smaller, temporary location on Falcon Lawn. There will be reduced facilities available and the nearest toilets to the entrance will be inside the Castle itself. Please see the main Visitor Centre page for more details.
