    Thornbury Castle was the absolute perfect wedding venue for us. I am an American woman who married a British guy, and of course getting married in a castle was like a dream.

    The venue is absolutely breathtaking and has incredible opportunities for wedding photos. Additionally the staff were absolutely amazing. The hotel manager did a great deal of the work and did an absolutely fantastic job both before with the planning and on the day. I would absolutely recommend this venue...
