View the days out leaflet for Berkeley Castle

The Castle
The oldest Castle in Britain to be lived in by the same family for nearly 900 years.Once a Norman Castle, now a comfortable family home. Visit the Norman Keep which contains the dungeon and King Edward II’s Cell, where he was murdered; through Mediaeval kitchens, and the Great Hall where the Barons of the West Country gathered before Magna Carta, into the softer and more elegant State Apartments.

The Gardens
The Castle is surrounded by eight acres of landscaped gardens, including Queen Elizabeth I’s bowling green, sweeping lawns, terraces and the 8th Earl’s swimming pool. Enjoy the fabulous collection of roses, huge magnolia trees and scented borders, as well as other specialist plants and shrubs, in this majestic setting.

Tropical Butterfly House
Located within the old walled kitchen garden, tropical species fly freely in this tranquil oasis; some of which are bred here. Experience the entire life cycle of these beautiful creatures making their transition from chrysalis to butterfly. The Butterfly House is open from May to September and includes a picnic area in the adjacent rose garden

Shops & Tea Room
To gain access to the Castle go through the Visitor Entrance into the Walled Garden and make your way to the Shop where you can purchase your admission. The Yurt in the Walled Garden is our new tea room and is serving an extensive menu from 10.00am and closes at 5pm.
