Built in 1509 and once owned by King Henry VIII and Queen Mary I, Thornbury Castle has a history that’s almost palpable as you walk its centuries-old halls. In 1535, King Henry VIII honeymooned here for 10 days with his bride Anne Boleyn and “The Duke’s Bedchamber” where the couple spent their honeymoon nights, is still available as a guest bedchamber to this day. Today, the castle offers a unique experience as a hotel, restaurant and luxury wedding venue, where guests can find inspiration in a piece of the country’s history. Within the castle, there are 27 sumptuous bedchambers, most with four poster or coronet beds and some with feature bathrooms.
Our wedding planning team are experts: they know the castle throughout and can guide you every step of the way, whether you’re organising an intimate family affair or a large celebration in The Tudor Hall. Thornbury Castle offers the contemporary comforts and conveniences of a modern venue, with breath-taking historical grandeur. Surrounded by landscaped gardens and enclosed by crenelated walls, the castle inspires your wedding guests as they approach.
The castle also has an award-winning restaurant and our Head Chef and his team prepare fresh food using seasonal ingredients, many of which are grown in our castle gardens. With an emphasis on choice and quality, they can create a menu to match your wedding and to meet the requirements of you and your guests.
With the architectural splendour of the Castle, this is a place of great romance, infused with history. While secluded and tucked away in its extensive private estate, Thornbury is within easy reach of the M4, M5 and Bristol.
