Elephant Family to have extended stay at Sudeley

Sudeley Castle & Gardens has announced that due to popular demand, its outdoor trail The Elephant Family has been extended for a further week.

The Elephant Family at Sudeley boasts over 30 life-sized elephant sculptures, which form a unique trail weaving through the castle's award-winning gardens and due to overwhelming demand, it has been extended until Sunday, June 6.

An abundance of people have already had an up-close experience with these enigmatic creatures, who will now graze the grounds until the first week of June and make for a memorable bank holiday or half-term visit for families, groups and couples.

Visitors can also enjoy the adventure playground, and the Castle Pantry and Terrace Café return to serve up a range of delicious, locally-sourced lunch options.

Visitors to Sudeley are among the first in the UK to see the awe-inspiring sculptures grazing on the North Lawn and scattered in herds and groups across the 10 formal gardens, which mimic the Hills of Southern India where the elephants were first created by tribal communities for the leading conservation Elephant Family charity.

The campaign uses indigenous art to turn green spaces into examples of successful human-animal coexistence, both locally and globally.

These monumental art experiences, inspired by the Land Art movement, create an enigmatic scene against the backdrop of the Cotswold hills.

All tickets for the Elephant Family must be pre-booked online at www.sudeleycastle.co.uk  and are on sale now with limited availability at weekends, so book early to avoid disappointment.

Please note, only outdoor spaces will be open and the castle itself will remain closed until Monday, June 7.
