Attraction Information

Berkeley Castle is England's oldest inhabited castle and most historic home. Over 24 generations of Berkeley's have transformed a savage Norman fortress into a truly stately home full of treasures.

You can see the cannons facing out over the meadow, the massive stone keep with the Civil War breach made by Cromwell's troops, the trip steps up to the keep to trip attackers, the cell where King Edward II was murdered, the deep dungeon where people were thrown in to die, Queen Elizabeth I's bedspread, the Great Hall where the last Jester in England died (was he pushed? Did he fall?) and so much more!

Events and activities for families and children are run throughout the year. Choose from arts and crafts, Jester's Dragon Hunt, storytelling, archery sessions and jester skills. And whilst you're here don't forget to call in on the Great Hall to see the five exquisite costumes from BBC2's drama Wolf Hall!
