Sudeley Castle & Gardens, will set the scene for a mighty migration of elephants grazing the grounds from 12 April to 31 May. Elephant Family at Sudeley will see over 30 enormous, life-sized elephant sculptures form a trail through the gardens this spring promising a poignant and fresh air-filled day out for families and conservationists alike.

Sudeley visitors and members will be among the first in the UK to see the awe-inspiring sculptures before they mobilise to form a 100-strong herd in London’s royal parks this summer and then migrating further to the USA and beyond on their global mission.

From 12 April children can once again enjoy the thrilling adventure playground, and the Castle Pantry will serve up a range of delicious, locally-sourced lunch options.

Please note, in line with government guidelines to ensure visitor safety, only outdoor spaces will be open and the castle itself will remain closed until 17 May at the earliest. For those hoping to enjoy the majestic elephant trail in a more tranquil environment, visiting earlier in the week is recommended.

All tickets for the Elephant Family must be pre-booked online and tickets for April are currently available. Elephant Family included with admission.

Future tickets will be available in due course.

We regret that dogs are not allowed in the castle grounds or gardens - including the children’s play area - apart from registered assistance dogs.
