About

*** Please note that Thornbury Castle is currently closed due to the ongoing impact of Covid-19 as well as for a comprehensive refurbishment. For more information, please visit their website. ***

Thornbury Castle is a beautiful 16th century building, which was once owned by Henry VIII and stands in 15 acres of regal splendour, surrounded by its vineyards and Tudor garden. It is renowned for being one of the finest country house hotels in England. It nestles on the northern edge of Thornbury adjacent to the Gloucestershire countryside, 12 miles north of Bristol, and is well placed for visiting the Cotswolds, the Georgian city of Bath and Wales.

2020 heralds the start of an exciting new era for Thornbury Castle, as they embark on a multimillion-pound refurbishment programme. This will result in a luxurious and sophisticated castle hotel experience, with reference to the history and traditions of Thornbury’s most famous owner; King Henry VIII. Find out more here.

Restaurant

The restaurant at Thornbury Castle offers plenty of modern, internationally-inspired dishes, as well as some traditional favourites. All dishes on the lunch and dinner menu use only the finest and freshest ingredients, and are sourced locally.
