  • Gardens were truly lovely, but interiors of castle disappointing. Despite the best efforts from enthusiastic volunteers, the castle experience is underwhelming. The original interiors were all...

  • Loved Sudeley Castle. Wish we lived nearer so we could visit more often. There was so much to see that one visit wasn't enough. Fabulous, interesting displays and lots of grounds to explore. The sculptures in the gardens are brilliant! Will definitely return in the future.
  • We visited the stunning Castle & grounds on 24/06/2022. The inside was great to see & to learn of its history. Grounds were spectacular. Would like to mention a Lady in the Gift shop called Maria who had great customer service & informative about the Castle. She obviously loves her job & is an asset to the team. We will certainly return.
