Thornbury Castle: You can see inside King Henry VIII’s honeymoon retreat where you now have the opportunity to stay
Thornbury Castle was built originally by Edward Stafford. He is the only person to have King Henry’s status and wealth at that time.
Henry was not pleased with this display of wealth, ambition, and His Majesty took over the castle after Stafford was guilty of treason.
Visitors can enjoy both traditional and modern medieval activities that will make them feel like they are back in the past.
You can choose from custom historical tours that include axe throwing and sword skills as well as archery, falconry and croquet on your lawn. There is even an opportunity to “Become a Tudor queen” for the day.
