Renovated Education Room boost to castle visitors

Where: Berkeley, Gloucestershire, GL13 9PJ.

When: From April to the end of October (Open Sunday to Wednesday)

Berkeley Castle are very excited to be unveiling their newly-renovated Education Room in time for re-opening to visitors on Sunday, March 29.

Following a successful application for grant funding from the LEADER Project last summer, they were able to commence the much-needed work to their Education Room as soon as the castle closed to visitors at the end of October 2019.

The previously draughty and sparse room has now been fully insulated and re-roofed, the walls have been dry-lined and re-plastered, the floor has been insulated, double-glazed windows and doors have been fitted to the front of the building and new wall heaters have been added.

They now have a comfortable and large space for schools to enjoy during their visits, whether it be to take part in one of their workshops or providing a room for school groups to enjoy their lunch whilst sheltering from the elements!

If you are a teacher or parent and would like to find out more about visiting Berkeley Castle please contact the groups co-ordinator Helen Berryman on 01453 512991.

Berkeley Castle is open from Sunday to Wednesday from April until the end of October, 10.30am - 5pm (last admission 4pm).
