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.

BUTTERFLIES & ROSES
Now is a wonderful time to visit Berkeley Castle, there are stunning roses at every turn and many other beautiful and unusual flowering shrubs on our terraces too. July's edition of Cotswold Life has a really interesting four page spread where Mr Berkeley discusses his passion for gardening and highlights his favourite roses and shrubs around the gardens and grounds of the Castle.
The Butterfly House is packed with beautiful, exotic butterflies and flowers too. It's a wonderful place to stroll through or sit and relax and watch the butterflies gracefully flutter by.
If our gardens inspire you there's plenty of roses, shrubs and perennials in our plant sales area, so why not have a browse and see if something appeals?
If you're looking for family fun, visit us on Sunday when we'll have free arts & crafts, dressing up and outdoor games too. In addition to our normal guided tours we also have two family friendly tours each Sunday and throughout the school holidays.
Our Yurt Tearoom is always a good place to stop by and treat yourself whilst you're here, with a delicious display of cakes and savouries - you'll be spoilt for choice!
This beautiful historic house, gardens and parkland set in the wonderful Worcestershire Countryside provides the ideal day out for you and your family.
