Christmas Parties

Christmas parties with roaring log fires, candlelight, twinkling Christmas trees and seasonal carols await your arrival at Hever Castle over the festive season.

As dusk falls, the gardens and grounds are spectacularly transformed into an illuminated winter wonderland.

Christmas Party Venues

With two award winning venues on offer to choose from, Hever Castle can host festive drinks receptions and sumptuous banquets in the historic surrounds of the Astor Wing and the Castle Dining Hall or a dinner dance in the Guthrie Pavilion.

Both venues will be adorned with traditional Christmas decorations and Christmas trees and a selection of Christmas entertainment can be arranged from a Tudor Minstrel to a live band. Combine all of this with our personal and attentive service, an eclectic collection of menus and you have the makings of a Christmas Party that you will never forget.


The 27 bedrooms at Hever Castle,  fit for a king, have been graded five stars by Quality in Tourism. Expect period colours, panelled walls, vaulted ceilings. Several rooms boast four posted beds and roll top baths. All offer luxury, antique furnishings and rich fabrics. Some rooms have stunning views across the formal lawns of the Astor Wing, others across the orchard to the Castle. All are en suite with period features subtlety combined with modern day luxury. We request that a minimum of ten bedrooms are booked if you are requiring bedrooms as part of your event.


Traditional Christmas menus are available or perhaps sample the delights of a lavish ‘Hever Castle Chef’s Table’ dining from a tempting selection of seafood and cold cuts returning to the Chef’s Table as many times as you like, watch as the chef carves your main course and finally indulge at the dessert table. We believe that your guests’ enjoyment of our food is fundamental to the success of your event and should you have any specific requirements, our Chef would be happy to discuss them with you and create your perfect menu. When possible, local produced is used.
