About Berkeley Castle

Berkeley Castle & Butterfly House – a great day out for every generation!

Berkeley is a stunning mediaeval castle which has been the home of the Berkeley family since 1153.

Family activities include Archery, Falconry, Jester Skills, Knight School, Wild Play Area, Dressing-up, Treasure Hunts, Arts & Crafts and much more. See the website for detailed information.

Location for the filming of The White Princess and the BBC’s adaptation of Wolf Hall & Poldark.

Tall towers, deep dungeon, grand and gruesome: homely and horrid. Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn & Elizabeth I stayed there; Edward II was murdered there, Shakespeare wrote ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ for a Berkeley family wedding.

Free castle tours reveal tapestries, paintings and fine silver. 8 acres of gardens and grounds, tropical Butterfly House, picnic area and yurt restaurant. 

Groups welcomed with your own Guided Tour.
