Sudeley Castle is a Grade I listed Castle located in the Cotswolds, near to the medieval market town of Winchcombe, Gloucestershire. The castle has 10 notable gardens covering some 15 acres within a 1,200 acre estate nestled within the Cotswold hills.
Building of the castle began in 1443 for Ralph Boteler; the Lord High Treasurer of England, on the site of a previous 12th century fortified manor house. It was later seized by the crown and became the property of King Edward IV and King Richard III, who built its famous banqueting hall.
King Henry VIII and his then wife Anne Boleyn visited the castle in 1535; and it later became the home and final resting place of his sixth wife, Katherine Parr who remarried after the king’s death. Parr is buried in the castle’s church, making Sudeley the only privately owned castle in the world to have a Queen of England buried in its grounds. Sudeley soon became the home of the Chandos Family, and the castle was visited on three occasions by Queen Elizabeth I, who held a three-day party there to celebrate the defeat of the Spanish Armada.
During the First English Civil War the castle was used as a military base, by King Charles I and Prince Rupert, and it was later laid to siege and slated by parliament, remaining largely in ruins for the following few centuries until its purchase in 1837 by the Dent family, who completed a major restoration. Since 2016, the castle hotel has been owned by Warner Leisure Hotels which completed another restoration and added a new music venue prior to a March 2019 reopening. Sudely Castle & Gardens continued to operate the castle itself as a tourist attraction, wedding venue and corporate conference centre.
