About

Thornbury Castle in England blends Tudor history with luxury. Once home to royalty, it offers opulent stays, beautiful gardens, and picturesque backdrops, perfect for unforgettable getaways or weddings.

Dating back to 1510, Thornbury Castle was once the honeymoon destination of none other
than Henry V111 and Anne Boleyn. Nestled on the edge of the Cotswolds and in close
proximity to Bristol and Bath, Thornbury Castle is an easily accessible yet exclusive wedding
venue. Set within its own stunning grounds and walled gardens, our Tudor castle offers the
perfect backdrop for a fairy-tale wedding.

Whether you’re looking for a grand showstopper on your big day, allowing you exclusive use
of the whole castle and its grounds, or a more intimate celebration with a handful of loved
ones, our expert team are ready to help you create a truly magical day.

Stay in a bedchamber slept in by Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn.

The Henry VIII Suite once hosted King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn in 1535 and overlooks the oldest Tudor Gardens in England. Relive history and stay in this beautiful four-poster bed suite. The room boasts an open fireplace and en-suite bathroom and can be reached via the original spiral stone staircase.

Henry VIII Suite

Catherine of Aragon Tower Suite.

Found, somewhat fittingly, at the very top of the South Wing Tower, the Catherine of Aragon Suite is in every sense the top suite in the castle. 

Catherine of Aragon Tower Suite

Once you’ve climbed the atmospheric spiral staircase and pushed open the grand wooden door, you’re greeted by exceptional features artfully presented across a decadent 71 square metres of living space. This encompasses 24-carat gilding, sumptuous Tudor furnishings, silk wall hangings and, at the heart of it all, the most enormous four-poster bed of any UK hotel.
