Venues with Unique Character

Hever Castle has played host to many important events and celebrations for over 700 years.  In 1903 when William Waldorf Astor set about restoring Hever Castle to its former glory, he added the Astor Wing, to accommodate his family and guests, before creating a lake and the spectacular Italian Garden to house his impressive collection of ancient Greek and Roman statuary.

Today the Astor Wing together with the Guthrie Pavilion in the Italian Garden and areas of the Castle itself are available for corporate and private events. Each venue has its own unique character and offers peace, privacy and seclusion in one of the most historic and beautiful settings in England.

Everything we planned was executed perfectly on the evening, the team gave exemplary service and the food was of a very high standard. The Great Hall was a stunning venue for such an event especially accompanied by a beautiful harpist! A number of guests stayed overnight and loved the rooms and breakfast! Suffice it to say, there were a number of guests in the room who have attended more corporate functions than I can remember, yet they were genuinely wowed by the Hever experience and the uniqueness of the setting.

We had the most perfect time. Everything was marvellous, with such attention to detail and exceptional service. The table looked amazing and the tea quite delicious. The staff were so kind and helpful and attentive and the venue was of course stunning, with even the weather perfect too.

We just wanted to say a massive thank you to all the staff at Hever for our wedding. It was everything we’d hoped for and more. The service from start to finish was fantastic and the staff working over that weekend were just incredible. Every guest we’ve spoken to brings up how brilliant and accommodating the staff were, and how well organised and professional the service team were during the wedding breakfast.
