Medieval Castle Gardens
Whatever the reason, if you have never visited a medieval castle garden .... you should!
The gardens and grounds of Berkeley Castle are delightful. Nothing pretentious or ostentatious, just a big, beautiful green space broken up by dashes of colour from flowers here and there.
According to history, Queen Elizabeth I was a regular visitor to Berkeley Castle and enjoyed many hours walking the gardens and grounds.
There certainly is a great sense of history as you walk on the grass, looking up at the massive stone walls of the castle.
