Berkeley Castle built in pink stone that glows softly in the sunlight it was built to keep the Welsh out of boundaries with the help of features such as the arrow slits, huge barred doors and murder holes.
The castle also houses the archives which include over 20,000 documents and manorial records. The castle also houses an unusual collection of bedspreads, banners, paintings, ceramics and silverware.
The castle's origins date back to the 11th century and it has been designated by English Heritage a Grade I Listed Building.
The castle has remained within the Berkeley family since they reconstructed it in the 12th century, except for a period of royal ownership by the Tudors. It was believed to be the scene of the murder of King Edward II in 1327.
