Trace Tudor history in Thornbury

This small market town in South Gloucestershire packs a big punch. Visitors make a beeline for the Grade I listed Thornbury Castle where you can still gaze on the imperious 16th century exterior, once home to the Dukes of Buckingham. If it's a special occasion, dine in the highly rated restaurant and soak in the history of the former dungeon.

Answer the call of the Cotswolds

Thornbury is located less than a half hour's drive from the western fringes of the sprawling Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the largest in England and Wales. Get your boots on and explore 1,990 square metres of pristine farmland and picturesque rolling hills. For serious walkers, the Cotswold Way's 100 mile path takes in stunning views over the Severn Way and the Vale of Evesham.

Go back in time in Bath

Less than 45 minutes' drive from Roman spa town of Bath in Somerset, Thornbury is ideally placed for exploring one of England's most beautiful cities. This UNESCO World Heritage site is overflowing with opulent architecture, including the renowned Royal Crescent and the stunningly well preserved Roman Baths themselves. Culture vultures will find lots to enjoy, with a clutch of fine museum, including the fascinating ceramics on show at the Museum of East Asian Art. Planning a trip to Thornbury?
