A visit to Hever Castle and its idyllic gardens is an experience to cherish and remember for years to come. This thirteenth century castle, once the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, is furnished with many Tudor portraits, furniture and artefacts. In 1903 William Waldorf Astor bought Hever Castle and restored the castle to how you will see it today. He also created the gardens including the yew maze (open April - October weather permitting) and the Italian Garden, as well as building the Tudor Village (now a residential conference venue). More recent introductions include the adventure playground and the water maze (open April-October) weather permitting - both of which are firm favourites with the children!
We welcome groups - both large and small (minimum of 15 people) and for information particular to your needs please visit the Group Visits section.
To allow enough time to enjoy all Hever Castle and Gardens has to offer, we suggest you allow about 4 ½ hours for your visit.
