To mark its eagerly anticipated re-opening, family-favourite Cotswold attraction, Sudeley Castle & Gardens, will set the scene for a mighty migration of elephants grazing the grounds from 12 April to 6 June. (Recently extended to cover the May half term holidays).
The Elephant Family at Sudeley will see over 30 enormous, life-sized elephant sculptures form a trail through the award-winning gardens against the backdrop of one of the country's most beautiful castles, offering a unique, COVID-secure spring jaunt for all.
Supporting Sudeley's commitment to conservation and preservation, the enigmatic gentle giants form part of environmental art campaign, CoExistence, which highlights the loss of biodiversity caused as humans encroach on wild spaces across the globe.
Sudeley visitors will be among the first in the UK to see the awe-inspiring sculptures resting alongside British wildlife including its own historic pheasantry, before they mobilise to form a 100-strong herd, set to transform London's royal parks into the Nilgiri Hills of Southern India this summer, before migrating further to the USA and beyond on their global mission.
Promising a poignant and fresh air-filled day out for families and conservationists alike, the trail will run throughout its 10 picturesque gardens, which will welcome visitors for the first time this year. While children can once again enjoy the thrilling adventure playground, and the Castle Pantry returns to 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 7 June. 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 trail must be pre-booked online and will go on sale on 25th March. Included with admission.
