Group visitors to historic Hever Castle and Gardens can find out more about Henry VIII’s ill-fated second wife, Anne Boleyn. Discover the different theories of her downfall. It is part of the new interactive exhibition of her childhood home from April to November 2020.
This romantic, double-moated castle is in the Weald of Kent. It is popular and much beloved of Tudor historians. Anne was the mother of Elizabeth I and an instigator of Henry’s break with Rome. For instance visitors can learn of various theories as to why she was executed.
The day has more to offer, however, than just history. The castle has award winning gardens. Highlights include the Italian Garden with its 38 acre lake and facsimile of the Trevi Fountain.
Special Events include:
- Hever in Bloom June 29 – July 5: An opportunity to experience the English Rose Garden at the height of its summer splendour with free guided tour.
- Craft Fair September 10 – September 13: 120 exhibitors from the UK’s finest designer makers and contemporary artists
- Autumn Colour From October 1: Enjoy the spectacular autumnal tints. The castle is reputed to be at its most photogenic during the autumn months when the Boston ivy on the front turns a vivid shade of red.
Above all, a day out to Hever Castle is a very special excursion and one that won’t be quickly pasted into the faded-memory file. For more information on what the castle has to offer read more here.
