At Hever Castle & Gardens, see where the famous second wife of King Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, spent her childhood. Boleyn's brief marriage to the King--and subsequent execution when he sought a new wife--made her a key figure in the Church of England's 16th-century break from the Vatican. Today, you can see portraits from her era, paintings, furniture, and tapestries in the castle where she grew up. Outside, view Italian, rose, and Tudor gardens and walk around the water maze and shrubs trimmed into statues. Special events, such as gardening sessions with the Head Gardener and jousting tournaments, happen throughout the year. Check the schedule before you visit. You can also purchase an audio tour of the site at the Hever Shop, Information Centre, or entrance. Using our custom trip planner, Hever attractions like Hever Castle & Gardens can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Had the best time here. So much to do. Some access for pushchairs and wheelchairs. Castle itself is fascinating but not wheelchair or pushchair friendly. Gardens are stunning and so much to see and do. Dog friendly. Good cafes. Toilets by both entrances. Great day out.
Just had an overnight stay in the luxury bed & breakfast accommodation. It was an excellent stay, the rooms are extremely comfortable, the staff very friendly and helpful, the Castle and grounds superbly kept. It is described as "5 star" and, for once, that is accurate. Here is proof that attention to detail really pays. Check it out on-line.
