Welcome!

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.

AUTUMN AT THE CASTLE

It's hard to believe that it's October already! But what a fantastic Summer we've had? Sadly our Butterfly House has now gone into hibernation for the winter, but will reopen its doors in May 2015. Don't forget to gift aid your ticket if you visit us this month and you'll be able to visit us again next year free of charge when the Butterfly House is open again.

We spring into Harvest on Sunday 5th October, there'll be lots to see and do. Enjoy music from Michael Gardner in the morning and the Ragged & Old mixed morris side, based in Stroud, in the afternoon. Meet the South Gloucestershire Association of Beekeepers as they spread the word about the importance of bees and explain how everyone can encourage them into their gardens. Plus see a heavy horse at work harvesting wood in the grove, sample apple juice fresh from the press, have-a-go at needle-felting and learn how to fish with a putcher and punt. Pete Tiley from the popular Salutation Inn will also be at Berkeley Castle on Sunday to show how grain can be turned into liquid and to describe small and table beers.

Children will be invited to take part in pumpkin carving and to create a number of pumpkin related arts and crafts from 26th until 29th October. Pumpkin soup will be served in the Yurt Restaurant in the Walled Garden and visitors will be able to purchase a host of plants in the end of year plant sale at the entrance to the Castle.

Finally, do you have a few hours to spare? We have a great vacancy for a Butterfly House Assistant. Find out more here.
