A full day trip to see these splendid properties, a few miles apart but separated by 700 years of history. We start at Woodchester an incomplete Victorian Gothic manor. From oustide, the masonry and roof look complete but inside it is hauntingly empty. Afterwards we go to Berkeley Castle (pictured) home of the eponymous family since the C11. A Marches Castle, built to keep out the Welsh, its layout is unusual in having two sets of curtain walls.

Tickets, only available in advance, include return private coach transport from the Holburne, light refreshments and lunch and private tours of both sites. To reserve your place please use BOOKING FORM 1 in the Supporters Spring 2022 Newsletter, which has more information on the properties and guidance on Access.
