Tak abis lagi aktiviti melawat castle.. maklumlah kat UK ni byk btl castle sama ada yg dah separuh runtuh atau masih elok. Setiap castle ada uniknya tersendiri... sbb tue kami suka singgah utk tengok castle kat mana2 ajer tempat yg dikunjungi. Kalau istana kat negara kita dpt tengok dr jauh ajerlah... Castle kat sini siap blh masuk tour lagi walaupun masih ada orang yang tinggal kat situ. Cuma kat bahagian yg diorang duduk tue tak bleh masuk lah... stricly private (kecuali bila ada funtion tertentu br blh).

Sedikit info tentang castle nie... dicopy & paste dari web :

Set against the backdrop of the beautiful Cotswold Hills, Sudeley Castle is steeped in history. With royal connections spanning a thousand years, it has played an important role in the turbulent and changing times of England's past.

The Castle was once home to Queen Katherine Parr, the last and only surviving wife of Henry VIII. Henry, Anne Boleyn, Lady Jane Grey and Queen Elizabeth I have all lived at or visited Sudeley. King Charles 1 stayed here and his nephew, Prince Rupert, established his headquarters at the Castle during the Civil War.

Following its destruction by Cromwell's troops, Sudeley lay neglected and derelict for two hundred years. However, its romantic situation and ruins attracted many visitors, including King George III.

In 1837, Sudeley was bought by John and William Dent, of the Worcestershire glove making company of that name. They began an ambitious restoration programme which was continued by their nephew John Coucher Dent, who inherited the Castle in 1855. His wife, Emma, threw herself enthusiastically into Sudeley's restoration, at the same time forging strong links with the town of Winchcombe. It is the results of Emma Dent's dedication that is so evident in the gardens and exhibitions at Sudeley today.

Sudeley is now the family home of the Dent-Brocklehursts and Lord & Lady Ashcombe. The family are dedicated to Sudeley's continuted restoration and regeneration of the gardens, with particular emphasis on conservation and sustainability.
