Set against the stunning backdrop of the majestic castle, and surrounded by striking views of the Cotswold Hills, there are 10 magnificent, award-winning gardens which sweep around the castle and grounds. Not only that, but we also offer a fantastic adventure playground and fun fort for our younger visitors.

Sudeley Castle is also the only private castle in England to have a queen buried within its grounds. Visitors can explore the beautifully restored 15th century St Mary’s Church where Katherine Parr, the last of Henry VIII’s six wives, now lies entombed.

We work hard to recreate and preserve the beauty of our gardens, which were originally created in the 15th century when Ralph Boteler rebuilt the castle. No trace of Boteler’s original gardens now exists, but they are now an ever-evolving showcase of the best of what each season has to offer.
