Discover magnificent award-winning gardens set in 125 acres of glorious grounds at Hever Castle. Dating back to the 13th century, the romantic double-moated Castle was once the childhood home of Anne Boleyn.
The splendid rooms of the Castle contain fine furniture, tapestries, antiques, an important collection of Tudor paintings and two prayer books inscribed and signed by Anne Boleyn herself.
The gardens are home to an ever-changing display of wonderful plants and shrubs throughout the seasons. No matter what time of year you visit, you are guaranteed an impressive display.
Marvel at the Pompeiian Wall and classical statuary in the Italian Garden, admire the giant topiary chess set in the Tudor Garden and take in the views at the Loggia as you gaze across the 38 acre lake.
In spring the gardens display carpets of snowdrops, crocus and daffodils. Walls are covered in camellias and tulips are in full bloom, as are the rhododendrons, azaleas and wisteria.
In the summer months inhale the fragrance of the Rose Garden. Stroll along the herbaceous borders and through drifts of perennials. Wander further afield and enjoy the meadow flowers on Lake Walk.
Autumn is the season when Hever’s striking trees come to the fore. The Dahlia Border provides dazzling displays and the Castle stands magnificent with its walls clothed with colourful ivy.
As winter approaches, the warm red bark of the redwood trees glow against the winter sky and fruits glisten in the frost. The yew topiary stands majestically on the way up to the Castle with the Winter Garden displaying attractive and interesting colours and structures.
