The Castle is believed to have been built in the 15th Century on top of a site of a 12th century castle. The chapel in the Castle, St. Mary's Sudeley, is the burial place of Queen Catherine Parr, 6th wife of Henry VIII and contains her marble tomb. Sudeley Castle is one of the only castles left in the UK that is stillused as a residence, as a result of this parts of it are only open to the public on certain dates.
Annually Sudeley Castle will showcase its beautiful award-winning gardens with tours and Pimms on the Lawn. Alys Winchcombe, the resident harpest, will accompany the special tours with stunning harp music.
A great team of gardeners ensure that the gardens are managed in a way that support and encourage local wildlife and insects, and especially focuses on encuoraging the beaa population.
