From empowering tales of perseverance and determination to stories of scandal and heartbreak, the
exhibition does the important job of rediscovering women in history and showcasing their often-overlooked

‘The Women of Berkeley Castle’ takes the form of a Covid-safe trail through the castle and shares the stories
of women from all walks of life, stretching right back to medieval times – with the historic estate dating back
to the 11th century. 

From servants working in the castle’s kitchens to the noble ladies they waited on, it explores the struggles the
women of Berkeley Castle faced, as well as what they achieved in spite of their position in society.

Visitors will be entertained with stories of imprisonment, patronage and love – plus, discover the life of one
Lady Berkeley who witnessed one of the most famous events in English history… 

During these unusual times, you can rest assured that we have put into place lots of steps to ensure that
everyone is kept safe during their visit. 

And although you might not see it behind their protective masks, our
friendly staff will be their usual smiley selves while they help everyone play their part in safe social distancing.
