Thornbury Castle is a hotel and restaurant built in the time of Henry VIII with extensive grounds which include a vineyard; their wine is only available within the hotel.

About the castle and gardens

Built in the 1500s, Thornbury Castle has housed kings, queens and dukes over the centuries. Walk the halls lined with suits of armour and tapestry-hung walls and immerse yourself in English history. In the gardens, you can try archery, falconry and croquet, or simply enjoy afternoon tea and take in the grounds and gardens.

The Vineyard

The modest vineyard is in the grounds of the hotel; Thornbury Castle’s our own wine is produced from the grapes grown. It may be possible to purchase a bottle at Reception if quantities allow. Tours of the vineyard are not generally available, but may be arranged; please book in advance.
