  • We stopped here on our way to the Cotswolds and were not disappointed at all. This is a rather impressive Castle and Grounds, really not that far off the M5 highway at all. Plenty of parking as well. ...  more »
  • This wonderful old castle dates back to the 11th century and after hundreds of years of intriguing history is still lived in by the Berkeley family. A free tour given by experienced guides adds anothe...  more »

  • Everything about it was fantastic. Went on a tour of the castle - very engaging and informative. We enjoyed looking for the jesters. Grounds were small but pretty and the food was really nice. We were pleased that the ticket included entry for a year (with gift aid) and we will be going back to see Edward Jenner's house, which we missed this time. The butterfly house was lovely, and we enjoyed sitting and watching the butterflies and little birds.
  • Amazing place. The tour guides are the most enthusiastic people I have ever met. Described the people so well I felt I had been there. Will be back for a proper tour. This is an incredible place to have a wedding. The atmosphere and place is just perfect.
  • First time I've ever been even when it's only a couple of minutes from mine by car . I went to a evening wedding event so I did not get to see the touristy parts as it was what looked like the main hall big anoth for a ballroom dancing . I will have to go again to look around during daylight .
  • Great place to visit, met Charles Berkley while walking around the estate, he was very entertaining. Coffee house was a great place for some refreshments and lunch...Just watched "Johnny English Strikes Again" and was pleased to see the castle in a different light.
  • I would highly recommend Berkeley Castle as a wedding venue. The location is breathtaking, and the castle is spectacular. We fell in love with the castle when we first visited, and booked immediately as we knew no other venue could ever compare. Pippa Crossman, Jenny Low and all the team there are just wonderful. We had so much fun working with them during the build up to the wedding, and never once felt the stress people had so often told us we'd have. Our day was fabulous because it was our wedding day, but also because the perfect venue has the most perfect staff. Everything ran like clockwork. You could not find a better team of people to look after you. Thank you so much Pippa, Jenny, Tony, and all at Berkeley Castle. We will be forever grateful to you for giving us the most incredible day possible.
