  • We loved Sudeley Castle. Beautiful place and views. Lots of history surrounding Katherine Parr and Henry VIII. The animal sculptures were fabulous. Lovely chapel. Interesting exhibitions. If you have young children, there is an amazing adventure playground, and all the animals to find, a willow maze and yew corridors to run in and out of. Cafe was reasonably priced and staff friendly. Highly recommended!
  • Really nice grounds with lots of well kept gardens to see. Interspersed with animal sculptures which was great to keep our daughter entertained. Having been inside the house I probably wouldn’t bother going back inside, but would definitely visit again for the grounds. You can spend around 3hours here quite easily
