Celebrate The Royal Arrival And Lord It Up Like Royalty For Less, With Tewkesbury Park's

Royal Breakaway

May 2019 -To celebrate the birth of theDuke and Duchess of Sussex's baby boy, Tewkesbury Park is celebrating all things royal this year.  Set in 165 acres of undulating parkland and commanding an enviable position overlooking the famous site of the 1471 Battle of Tewkesbury, has created a Royal Breakaway package, which includes:

    Two nights' accommodation including breakfast

    One three-course evening meal with a bottle of Yealands Pinot Noir Rose

    Tickets to Sudeley Castle and the Queens' Garden -best known for its stunning display of over 70 varieties of roses

    Traditional Afternoon tea for two, with a glass of Taittinger Champagne

    One English Garden Spa Treatment (one treatment per room)

When it comes to royal connections, the historic town of Tewkesbury and the surrounding area is an Aladdin's Cave. Sudeley Castle, a short drive away, located in the pretty chocolate-box village of Winchcombe, was the residence of Katherine Parr, the last survivingwife of King Henry VIII. The castle is surrounded by a breath-taking 1,200-acre estate and ten gardens. The centrepiece is the Queens' Garden, so named because four of England's queens - Anne Boleyn, Katherine Parr, Lady Jane Grey and Elizabeth I - once walked upon the original Tudor Parterre. Nowadays, the garden boasts over 70 varieties of roses.

Back at Tewkesbury; every July the town celebrates the Wars of the Roses Festival - a medieval festival commemorating the1471 Battle of Tewkesbury, whenthe forces loyal to the House of Lancaster were comprehensively defeated by those of the rival House of Yorkunder their monarch, King Edward IV. From May onwards Tewkesburytakes on a notable difference when locals produce and display medieval banners outside their premises in readiness for the town's annual highlight - the Wars of the Roses Festival.
