Inside Hever Castle 

Inside Hever Castle is a new online subscription that will let you explore this historic property from the comfort of your home.

We will be opening the doors and showing you parts of the Castle that have never been open to the public before, take you into the heart of the Castle archive and allow you to have close up access to some of the priceless objects that are harder to see in person.

You will have exclusive access to the expertise of our curator and numerous members of the staff who work here on the Hever Castle Estate.

The official content begins on January 1st.

So join us Inside Hever Castle.

  Winter Walks at Hever Castle

DAYTIME Winter Walks – December 27 2020 – January 3 2021

Wrap up warm and blow away the cobwebs, walk off the Christmas pudding and take a stroll in the gardens where the warm bark of the redwood trees glows against the winter sky.

On the way up to the Castle, the yew topiary stands majestically and the Winter Garden displays attractive and interesting colours and structures. For the more energetic, take a bracing walk around the Lake.

To visit the gardens you will need to book a date and time slot for arrival online (including Annual Members), this is to limit numbers to protect yourself and each other.
