Sudeley Castle

Explore the 10 glorious gardens surrounding the Castle, each very different.

Wander through the romantic Tithe Barn Garden to the Mulberry Garden.

The Moorish Knot Garden was created by Jane Fearnley-Whittingstall in 1995. Its design is based on a pattern on a dress worn by Elizabeth I in a portrait of the Queen that hangs in the Castle.

Rambling roses tumble over the ruins of the 15th century Banqueting Hall while the Queens’ Garden – originally an Elizabethan parterre – has a wonderful rose garden laid out in formal beds with a central fountain.

Don’t miss the White Garden near the Church or the Secret Garden replanted to celebrate the marriage of Henry and Lili Dent-Brocklehurst.

Walk through the Rare Breeds Pheasantry to the Moat and a series of ‘Tudor’ gardens.

The gardens are open from March until December – check the website for details.
