Sudeley Castle Elephant Family trail is being extended

The Elephant Family trail at Sudeley Castle is being extended until June 2021, giving visitors an extra week to see the incredible sculptures.

Having proved so popular during its first three weeks, the Elephant Family trail at Sudeley Castle and Gardens is being extended until Sunday 6 June 2021.

The trail features 30 life sized elephant sculptures grazing throughout the castle gardens, giving visitors to the Cotswold attraction the chance to get up close to these majestic creatures.

Visitors to Sudeley Castle are among the first in the world to see the sculptures – with the trail proving so popular, tickets for the first three weeks sold out.

The trail is now being extended for another week, giving people in Gloucestershire a chance to visit during May half term, before the herd migrates to their next destination.

Anyone wanting to see the Elephant Family will need to pre-book tickets online in advance. Admission to the trail gives visitors access to Sudeley Castle’s gardens and the adventure playground, but the castle itself will be closed until Monday 7 June 2021.
