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.
Visit us soon - before we close our doors for the 2018 season at the end of October
October is a lovely month to visit the Castle.
It's a peaceful time, a great opportunity to browse the Castle's fascinating rooms, soak up the atmosphere and study the wonderful paintings, tapestries and artefacts. The gardens and grounds are full of autumnal hues and there are plenty of conkers waiting to be gathered by our younger visitors!
We've some spooktacular treats lined up for half term week. Wizards, Witches & Owls will be waiting to entertain you. Carve your own pumpkin and toast marshmallows - see our What's On page for further information.
