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.
Strictly Come Dancing Costumes exhibition and launch party
Strictly Glitz & Glamour arrives at Berkeley Castle
The exhibition of stunning costumes from the 2017 series of Strictly Come Dancing is now underway and continues throughout September during normal Castle opening hours, Sunday-Wednesday each week. Entry to the exhibition is included in your normal admission fee.
Each dress has been lit so that the exquisite detail is brought to life along with the sparkle of thousands of crystals and beads, all painstakingly applied by hand.
You'll also be able to watch footage of the celebrities wearing (and dancing in) the dresses on display. Read all about the inspiration for each dress, along with fun facts, from Vicky Gill, Costume Designer for Strictly Come Dancing.
Read the judges' comments and scores and let happy Strictly memories come flooding back - just in time for the 2018 series!
