Included in a Gardens Only or Castle & Gardens admission ticket.
Due to staff shortages, catering in the grounds of Hever Castle & Gardens will be limited for this weekend (Saturday 28 – Monday 30 August). This is due to nationwide hospitality staff shortages as widely reported in the press. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused. Further information can be found here.
Throughout the summer holidays (22 July – 31 August) take part in a series of free hands-on activities and enter the magic of Hever during medieval times.
Join our resident sorcerers and learn the tricks of the trade. Learn about magical creatures and find out which are friend and which are foe. Find out how to cast spells and how to execute the perfect wand waving technique. Pick up your broomstick and defend the castle from the dragon. Come dressed as fairy-tale characters, your favourite witch or wizard or perhaps as a brave knight and the best dressed will receive a certificate. The list goes on!
