Christmas at Hever Castle

It’s that time of year again! With welcoming log fires, and beautiful decorations in the Castle, a Christmas trail to follow and the chance to see Father Christmas – be enchanted by the magic of Christmas at Hever. 

Tickets are currently on sale to Annual Members and go on sale to the general public at 11am on Wednesday 27 September.

Autumn Colour from 1 October

As the air turns crisp and a rich display of autumn colour envelops the countryside, pack your walking boots or wellies and head to Hever Castle to enjoy the crunch of leaves underfoot and spectacular autumn tints. 

The Castle is arguably at its romantic best in the autumn when the Boston Ivy adorning the front of the Castle turns a vivid shade of red. You will be treated to glorious displays of autumn colour with the rich yellow, red and orange leaves of beech mingling with liquidambars, tulip trees and Japanese maples, all contributing to an explosion of colour.

Halloween Half Term: 21 – 29 October

Treat your little ones to a spine-tingling visit to Hever Castle over the Half Term break.

Keep an eye out for letters scattered in the grounds to spell out a mysterious word in return for a small prize. Don’t miss the giant spider!

Don your creepiest costume to really get the most out of the family friendly Halloween themed trail.
