Thornbury Castle Hotel – Thornbury, England

Prices & Photos

One of the most magnificent castles in the United Kingdom, Thornbury lies at the edge of the postcard-perfect Cotwolds region and was once owned by the famous Tudor dynasty that ruled Ireland, the UK and France from 1485 through 1603. It even played host to King Henry the VIII and Anne Boleyn who spent 10 days here as part of their honeymoon tour during the summer of 1535. Before the current castle was built, William the Conqueror’s wife Matilda of Flanors had an 11th-century manor on this very site. Today, it’s the only Tudor castle open to the public as a hotel, allowing anyone to enjoy the splendor of its bed chambers with exposed stone walls, canopy beds and aged tapestries.
