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.
So much to celebrate and enjoy as we approach the Autumn & Winter months

They are situated in the Dining Room, so make sure you take time to view them whilst you're here.
