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.
Due to water maintenance works being carried out on Sudeley Hill there are diversions in place which many of our Visitors are finding difficult to follow. We strongly recommend that if possible you come to Sudeley via Cheltenham or Broadway, along the B4632 or if you are approaching from the East via Stow on the Wold along the B4077. Visitors approaching from the M5/West should be unaffected. We apologise for any inconvenience and hope you can find us!
