Nestled in the leafy landscape of South Gloucestershire, with views stretching to the Severn Estuary and the hills of South Gloucestershire and Wales, Thornbury Castle was built in the early 16th century. As you walk through the tapestry-lined halls past suits of armour, echoes of great moments in English history abound – the beheaded Duke of Buckingham, Henry VIII’s honeymoon with Anne Boleyn and Mary Tudor, who lived here before taking the throne as Queen Mary.

Today, this Tudor Castle is recognised as one of the finest historic hotels in the country, where Tudor style meets modern excellence. Indoors are magnificent open fireplaces, fine old panelling, historic paintings, a dungeon dining room and a grand hall for balls, feasts and parties. Outdoors in the garden enjoy croquet on the lawn, have a go at archery, or learn the basics of falconry at additional cost (pre-booking essential).

There are 27 carefully restored bedchambers, most overlooking the vineyard or the oldest Tudor garden in England; many have luxurious four-poster beds and huge Tudor fireplaces. The four intimate dining rooms have a gracious ambience to suit the superb cuisine. Private dining is also available in the atmospheric Dungeon. For a bit of extra pampering, an array of massages and beauty treatments is available in the comfort of your bedchamber.

Thornbury is an ideal base from which to discover the many historic sites, villages and towns located within an hour’s drive of the castle, or cross the Severn Bridge into Wales and explore that beautiful country.
