Hever Castle & Gardens
Be inspired to come and visit this thirteenth century romantic castle - once the childhood home of Anne Boleyn.
Set in magnificent gardens from the majestic formal Italian Garden and topiary, to the informal meanderings of the lakeside and Sunday Walk. The Water Maze on Sixteen Acre Island and the Yew Maze challenges both adults and children alike!
The warm and welcoming atmosphere of Hever Castle and Gardens will give you a day to remember.
