The Berkeley family welcome you to Berkeley Castle, their ancient fortress home where they have lived since their ancestor, Robert Fitzharding, completed the Keep in the late 12th Century.

The history played out within Berkeley Castle’s walls make it one of the most remarkable buildings in Britain and the family hope that you will visit them to experience its special atmosphere.

Plan a great day out this year for Father's Day.  Dads get free entry (with each full paying child - aged 16 and under) and a free main course in our Yurt Restaurant with another main course purchased.

We've got lots of fun lined up for the whole family, with bouncy castles and giant games on the Lower Lawns, all included in your entrance fee.  There's free Arts & Crafts sessions in our Education Room too.

And for a musical interlude you can enjoy one of two performances by the Gloucestershire U3A Recorder Group in our Great Hall at 11.30am and 12.30pm

Purchase your admission tickets in advance here - remember if you're purchasing a child's ticket, Dad will get free entry, so no need to purchase a ticket for him!
