Berkeley Castle

UK»England»Gloucestershire»Berkeley Castle

Berkeley Castle has been lived in by the same family for over 900 years. It is where history has been made. Where Edward II was murdered, where the Barons of the West gathered before Magna Carta and where Queen Elizabeth I hunted and played bowls. Also within the old walled kitchen garden at Berkeley Castle are the Butterfly House and the Plant Centre. Come and see 42 exotic species from as far afield as Japan and Indonesia fly freely in a tranquil tropical osais. This is a great chance to see rare species in beautiful surroundings. You can observe their life cycle up-close through the display of caterpillars and chrysalises.
