Sudeley Castle announces major refresh For 2018

Sudeley Castle announces major refresh For 2018

Visitors will be able to enjoy a completely new experience of a Cotswold castle when it reopens on Monday 5 March.

The team at Sudeley Castle & Gardens in Winchcombe has been busy over the winter months refreshing the exhibitions, upgrading the dining facilities and installing a brand new play fort.

Visitors will now be able to learn about Sudeley’s 1,000 years of history through thirteen exhibitions dedicated to the people and events who made the castle the iconic Tudor attraction it is today, including: Henry VIII and his six wives, Elizabeth I and current owner, Lady Ashcombe. 

A new head chef has also been appointed at the new Terrace Restaurant to offer a new dining experience to visitors at the castle, serving the finest locally sourced ingredients.

Also new for 2018 is a bigger, better new play fort complete with slides, climbing wall, zip-wire which, along with the maze, provides fantastic fun for little ones.

2018 also sees the introduction of two new self-guided tours, and an extended opening period - which will see the castle open until 21 December.

Lady Ashcombe, who owns and lives at Sudeley Castle & Gardens, said: “2018 is set to be a momentous year for Sudeley. Visitors love the castle, so we’re pleased to allow the opportunity to visit during the winter months too.

“This season could very well be our best yet, with more exhibitions, enhanced dining options and a wonderful new space for little lords and ladies to enjoy. I am excited to open the gates next month to friends both old and new, for what I hope is another brilliant year at the castle.”

Sudeley Castle is situated near Winchcombe in the heart of the Cotswolds.
