Daily Tours – Dig the Tudors at Sudeley Castle

This October, archaeologists from DigVentures are unearthing the remains of an elaborate Tudor garden, lost in the grounds of Sudeley Castle.

Built by Thomas Seymour for his wife, widowed Queen Katherine Parr, these gardens were a manifestation of his love for one of the most famous queens in English history. Complete with extensive walkways, water features and potentially even a banqueting house!

Lying with the heart of this place where Tudor royals once entertained and explored, the dig is sure to turn up all manner of surprising discoveries. What did the people of the past leave behind? And what clues will the archaeologists find?

Join the DigVentures team for a behind-the-scenes tour of the dig where you’ll get to see a fascinating piece of Tudor history being unearthed for the first time in nearly 400 years.

Enjoy a rare chance to witness archaeologists at work, and get a close-up look at their latest discoveries.

Tours running from 12:00 – 12:45 daily except Monday 24 October.

This event is suitable for adults and families of all ages. If you love history, are curious about archaeology, or would simply love to explore this stunning Tudor palace and its history, then come along to see the Tudors being uncovered!
