At Hever Castle, we pay tribute to this enigmatic woman whose story forms an important part of the rich tapestry of the Castle’s history.

Hever Castle was Anne Boleyn’s childhood home and a place she came to several times throughout her life to seek refuge, whether escaping gossip or recovering from illness. It also formed the unlikely backdrop to a sequence of tumultuous events that changed the course of Britain’s history, monarchy and religion.

Anne Boleyn’s 1527 printed Book of Hours will be turned to the page that bears her poignant signed inscription: ‘Remember me when you do pray that hope doth lead from day to day. Anne Boleyn.’

To preserve the signature we are unable to have this page on display at all times, so this is an extremely special time for all those who visit Hever Castle.

Visitors will be able to see Anne Boleyn’s signature on Saturday 18th May and Sunday 19th May 2024.

Please note, we are now offering Behind the Scenes Tours as some rooms in the Castle will be closed until 25 June – learn more.


Always check the latest details before travelling. Hever Castle reserves the right to close all or part of the Castle, grounds, catering outlets and activities. Please note that use of partner offers may be restricted on some dates, please check before booking.
