Sudeley Castle Free for ChildrenPosted: 2010-08-04
Sudeley Castle, in Winchcombe, Gloucestershire, is one of my favourite historic houses. That may have something to do with the fact that it's only a few miles from where the Britain Express family live in the north Cotswolds, but there's more to it than that! Its a lovely combination of a historic castle, stately home, and garden - and they host pretty enjoyable medieval jousts, too!
I just got news that Sudeley is having a special price deal this August 2010 that might interest fellow parents. Throughout August (well, not quite throughout, as the special deal ends on 27 August) children go free. That's free, as in zip, zilch, nothing, no charge. Each adult who pays the regular entrance fee gets to bring two children along at no charge.
Here's the fine print:
Free tickets are only available between Monday and Friday until 27th August 2010. That's it, no more fine print.
Sudeley is open daily from 10.30am to 5pm. Visit the website at www.sudeleycastle.co.uk or call the Visitor Centre on 01242 604244 for more information.
Now, hopefully, the kids will enjoy a bit of the history on offer at Sudeley, but when they get tired of looking at Katherine Parr's prayer book or historic interiors, they can always play in the adventure playground. Our children really enjoyed Sudeley, so if you're in the area it might be a good way to get them out of your hair ... er .. out of the house, and have a fun family day out.
