Berkeley Castle, England

This evening, I am posting information on Berkeley Castle which is situated about 130 miles west of London in the Bristol region.

Berkeley Castle has been occupied by the same (Berkeley) family for 900 years. The castle's origins date back to the 11th century when it was constructed as a Norman fortress. Edward II is reputed to have been murdered at Berkeley.Inside can be found a Great Hall, Norman Keep, State Apartments, furniture, rare paintings, tapestries and silver. Outside are eight acres of landscaped gardens. There is also an interesting Tropical Butterfly House.
