With gorgeous landscaped grounds and an ancient walled kitchen garden, not to mention the architectural splendour of the Castle itself, 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.

The castle is renowned for its 2AA Rosette cuisine, with our award-winning chef conjuring up mouthwatering dishes using the best quality – mostly locally sourced – ingredients.

Thornbury Castle has 27 unique bedchambers for you and your guests, with suites ideal for big day preparations (and recovery). Take a pre-party nap on a giant four-poster bed, get ready for the ceremony in an ornate dressing room, and smarten up in a beautifully designed spacious bathroom. All of the bedchambers are regally decorated and appointed to the highest standard.

Our wedding planning team are genuine experts: they know the castle inside-out and can guide you through every step of the way, whether you’re organising an intimate family affair or a no-holds-barred ball in the great hall.
