Be Inspired By The Local Kent Area

Hever Castle & Gardens is nestled in the stunning Kent High Weald and is surrounded by breathtaking scenery. The local Kent area comprises an array of charming villages, impressive attractions, and beautiful country walks.

The spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells is less than 30 minutes away by car offering an selection of shops, restaurants and the famous Pantiles.

Sevenoaks is also less than 30 minutes away and has more than its fair share of historic houses and gardens, extraordinary landscapes, bucolic towns and villages as old as time.
