The Castles in the Cotswolds are steeped in royal history and this exciting tour will allow you to find out about many of the events that shaped our magnificent country. You will be transported to Sudeley Castle the tranquil medieval Castle that was the home of Katharine Parr Henry VIII last wife. Wonder the castle and take time to witness Katharine Parr’s tomb in the charming chapel surrounded by the beautiful gardens.
Next up will be a visit to the Gloucester Cathedral, where you will be guided around one of the most magnificent ‘Gothic’ cathedrals in the country, so good in fact, that it was used extensively for filming of a little series of movies about a boy called ‘Harry Potter’ and the burial sites of Robert Curthose, eldest son of William the Conqueror and Edward II of England, seventh Plantagenet king of England.
After this busy morning we’ll take you for lunch at a historic inn then it’s over the hills to Berkeley Castle. With an aristocratic linage dating back to the time of Edward the Confessor, and most famous as the site of the murder of Edward II, this Cotswolds Castle has remained in the same family since it’s start. The Castle’s head tour guide will give us a private tour of the Castle, seeing sights unseen to the public and offering personal stories passed down through generations of the family.
The Castles in the Cotswolds, royal history and wonderful medieval buildings make this the perfect tour for any history lover.
