This is an interesting venue to visit with lovely gardens and entertainment for children, however they need to upgrade food services and perhaps consider how to improve how the interior is presented, it all comes across as a bit tired and old fashioned and not...More

Shopping extravaganza in the grounds of Sudeley Castle in aid of Charity. Lots of stalls in a marquis and the quality of the goods for sale was excellent.

Great value for money and much history to see. The grounds around the castle are huge and much room to roam, or for children to run around in. Highly recommend visiting here if you have the time.

Nearest train station is Cheltenham Spa. From Cheltenham there is a bus service to Winchcombe the nearest village. Sudeley castle is approximately 20 minutes' walk from Winchcombe.
