Berkley Castle and Dr Jenners House
Tuesday 26 May 2020

Berkeley castle
This stunning medieval castle has been the home of the Berkeley family since 1153. Elizabeth, Edward II was murdered here. Private guided castle tours reveal tapestries, paintings, fine silver and dark dungeons. The terraced gardens are filled with unusual plants, a tropical butterfly house, picnic area and yurt restaurant.
Dr Jenner’s House
From Gloucestershire in the 1790s to Somalia in the 1970s, Dr Jenner’s House, Museum and Garden traces the impact of one of the pivotal events in world history, in the place where it happened. This is the house where Edward Jenner, pioneer of vaccination against smallpox, lived and told the world about his work. Less than 200 years later, smallpox had been eradicated, with countless lives saved in the process.
