    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...

    Thank you to everyone at Thornbury Castle who helped to make our daughter Jill’s marriage to Chris such a memorable day. We would also like to give a special thank you to Hannah, who so efficiently took away all the stress from arranging the wedding.

    We had an amazing time, all our expectations for the day were met and then exceeded! Every member of staff made us feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We cannot praise you enough.
