About Us

Thornewood Castle is a historic, waterfront wedding venue located in Lakewood, Washington. This unique 400-year-old castle was imported from Wales over 100 years ago. It’s constructed in the English Tudor Gothic style and is known as “the house that love built.” Thornewood Castle situated just south of Tacoma, offers both indoor and outdoor sites for your ceremony and reception on their three-acre estate.

Facilities and Capacity

  • The property captured my heart. The walkthrough of the castle was amazing. The photographs don't give justice to this wonderful piece of artwork that has been standing strong over the decades. It's one of a kind and must visit. I'm honored to get married here.
