With the summer holidays a distant memory, the leaves in the grounds are turning autumnal and the season of long shadows is here.
The Castle is at its most photogenic during the autumn months when the Boston Ivy on the front turns a vibrant shade of red.
For many of the team at Hever Castle & Gardens autumn is their favourite season in the grounds.
Events & Sales Coordinator, Harriet, enthused: “I’m always eager for the crisp mornings with a hazy mist to descend on us at Hever. Walks around the Lake, kicking up the leaves and admiring the beautiful array of colours that the variety of trees throw our way is a visual treat and very good for the soul.”
Accounts & IT Assistant, Claire, described her favourite part of the grounds in autumn as “the view over the Lake because of the changing colours of the trees and the low light.”
Head Gardener, Neil, also eulogised about the “amazing autumn light levels in the afternoon” identifying the Lake and surrounds as his favourite destination at this time of the year. He went on to say that he loves “the colour of the Dahlias which brighten up a dull day.”
Rounding things off, Digital Marketing Assistant, Jo, described autumn at Hever Castle as “a feast for the eyes” identifying her favourite part of the grounds in autumn as “the walk from Two Sisters’ Pool down to the Castle – you get a stunning view of all the different trees and colours, culminating in the beautiful view of the Castle with its Boston Ivy.”
