Sudeley is the only private home in England to have a Queen buried within its grounds. Katherine Parr, the last and surviving wife of King Henry VIII, came to live at Sudeley after his death and is now entombed in our church, St Mary's, which is open to visitors. Sudeley's unique Gardens are amongst the finest in England. Our annual Garden Week in June features the centrepiece Queens Garden, which sits on the original Tudor Parterre and billows with hundreds of varieties of old fashioned roses. Overall Sudeley boasts ten stunning gardens, which we are constantly improving and evolving. As well as all of this we have a giant wooden play fort for our younger visitors to enjoy, exhibitions, a Cafe and Pheasantry. We look forward to welcoming you to Sudeley. « less

There are handmade gift items including bags, bowls and boxes all made using fabric. If you have made a quilt top and don't want to do the quilting yourself you can bring it to Claire who will do the job for you on the longarm machine on the premises. « less
