Berkeley Castle

A gem in pink stone Berkeley Castle, built in the 12th Century by the Berkeley family is still lived in by the Berkeleys today, 24 generations later.

The Castle has been at the forefront of English history for nearly 1,000 years. Most famous for the brutal murder of Edward II in 1327, the Castle was besieged and captured by Cromwells troops in 1645. The family gave their name to Californias Berkeley University and Londons Berkeley Square. Berkeley Castle & The Edward Jenner Museum offer a joint ticket to both attractions.
