In the Cotswolds and surrounding area we work with three Castles to offer a unique behind the scenes historic private castle tour.
These medieval fortresses situated across Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire are certain to amaze anybody, between them they have an aristocratic linage dating over a 1000 years, a site of the murder of Edward II and have held many Royal events and wars.
You’ll have the opportunity to tour a Castle whilst it’s closed to the public and a member of the family or head tour guide shall show you around. You will be given an in-depth private tour of the Castle, seeing sights unseen to the public and offering personal stories passed down through generations of the families. If required private lunches and dinners can be organised to match this unique experience.
Keeping with the historic theme the afternoon can be taken in many ways, to visit any of the following stunning sites; Sudeley Castle, burial place of Henry VIII’s last wife Catherine Parr, Hereford Cathedral, home of the famous ‘Mapa Mundi’ or even Tewkesbury Abbey, a significant sight of pilgrimage and worship for over 500 years.
This is a day to remember for any lover of English history, after our historic private castle tour the day is yours to visit any of the nearby historic sites.
