An Immersive Visit to Hever Castle & Gardens

Walk through 700 years of British history by visiting Hever Castle: The historic seat of the Boleyn family and many other nobles.

Hever Castle is the childhood home of Anne Boleyn and also became the home of King Henry VIII’s fourth wife, Anne of Cleves.

Located in a beautiful location in The Weald of Kent – the hunting grounds of medieval kings – Hever Castle has hosted dignitaries over the centuries and played a central role in many chapters of Tudor history.

What sets this significant treasure apart from many others is that it has historically been both a manor house and a castle. Today it provides visitors with a unique experience of Tudor England quite unlike anywhere else. Its various owners played their role in some of Britain’s most turbulent chapters, influencing the country’s royal and religious standing forever. Its twentieth-century owners, the Astor Family, restored the site to its former glory for us to enjoy it today.

Our private tour – which has earned Viator’s Badge of Excellence – may be included as one of our Tailor-Made Tours of South East England.

Make your experience of this picturesque part of England even more memorable by upgrading this private tour to include a visit to the quaint village of Chiddingstone for English tea or a traditional meal at a pub. The village is so cherished it is managed by The National Trust. Only a local guide can show you these hidden places many other visitors miss. (You can learn more about John’s England with John’s Tour Blogs).
