Day Trip to Sudely and Winchcombe: Monday 19 June 2017
Located in the heart of the beautiful Cotswolds, Sudeley Castle has played an important
role in our history, boasting royal connections that stretch back over a thousand
years. It contains many fascinating treasures from Roman times to the present day.
The stunning Banqueting Hall ruins provide a dramatic backdrop to 10 award winning
gardens. The centrepiece of these is the Queens', named after the four queens who
once walked there. One of these, Katherine Parr is buried within the grounds and
we shall visit the beautiful 15th-
We shall also visit the Castle exhibitions, which include:
The History of Sudeley extends to nearby Winchcombe, where we shall spend time and, in particular, visit its outstanding church with its famous grotesque gargoyles.
The cost of this visit (not including lunch and tea) will be £34. This includes the coach hire, a group day ticket and light refreshments on arrival.
The coach company is DJ Thomas, Neath.
