Visitors can benefit from discounted entry to the Hever Castle gardens (the Castle is closed) Wednesday to Sunday until 20 November to enjoy stunning autumn walks in 150 acres of space.

Tickets will cost £10 for adults and £6 for children (5-17 years) during this period. Please note there will be no concessions (senior/student/family rates) at this time. Applies to new bookings only. Tickets will need to be prebooked online.


Visitors can experience the last hint of autumn colour in the grounds, let off some steam in the play areas and enjoy takeaway food and drinks.

Autumn Colour this year is themed around the Japanese art of Forest Bathing and the importance of immersing yourself in nature to improve health and wellbeing.

Visitors can follow the trail which takes in Anne Boleyn’s Walk and Diana’s Walk or for those wanting a longer stroll, Lake Walk, the Japanese Tea House folly and Smugglers Walk offer spectacular colour and interest.

Those wishing to stick to the main paths can marvel at the classical statuary in the Italian Garden; admire the giant topiary chess set in the Tudor Garden and stroll through Blue Corner. The Loggia, overlooking the 38-acre lake, is the perfect spot to relax before exploring the many cascades, grottoes and fountains.

Please note that Diana’s Walk and parts of the Italian Garden are closed due to maintenance work.
