Attractions at Hever

Hever Castle & Gardens is the perfect setting for a day out whether alone, with friends or family. For history lovers this castle in Kent is a great place to learn not just about the Tudors, but also about the Astor family, who were the owners of Hever Castle for 80 years from 1903 and were responsible for most of what you see today.

Spend hours admiring not only the lovely interiors and historic elements but also the stunning grounds with statues and a variety of ornamental gardens, making it an ideal day out for horticultural lovers.

Children can enjoy the playground, while squeals of delight can be heard as visitors of all ages enjoy the challenge of finding their way through the Water Maze and the 100 year old Yew Maze. There’s a fascinating collection of miniature model houses and a beautiful lake that you can take boat rides on or a leisurely walk around. You can even try your hand at archery, paint a shield or watch a jousting event.
