Berkeley Castle


Welcome to Berkeley castle. This extraordinary venue is like no other place in the world. Not only is it rich in history but it is designed with such elegance and style. Over 9 Centuries ago, the ancestor of the current owner lived here. It is a true family affair! The whole place is magical and ever so atmospheric. It is actually renowned as one of Britain's most remarkable buildings. It was also once featured on the BBC's 'Britain's Hidden Heritage' programme. This location is mesmerising and can you believe that it was the last home of King Edward II? Incredible, right? The story says that he was imprisoned and murdered within the walls of this castle! Open to visitors most of the year, there is so much for you to discover within these walls. The Butterfly house is a particular favourite of worldwide visitors and do not miss out on the Yurt Tearoom either!


Gloucestershire has many hidden gems when it comes to tourist attractions and Berkeley Castle is one of the brightest of them all. Having stayed in the same family since the 12th century, which is no mean feat, this castle has seen it all from parliamentarian sieges too the murder of Edward the 2nd. The castle, although once a fortification too keep out the marauding Welsh has seen an awful lot of aggression within its walls, but there is still hint of fairytale within its demeanour. The atmosphere nowadays however is a lot calmer and you can get a tour around the castle from Sunday to Wednesday. On the other days the castle is the perfect back drop for brides getting married, and other events that happen within its ground. I absolutely loved my time here and I am positive that I will be returning again at some point in the future.
