It’s easy to imagine King Henry VIII wooing Anne Boleyn at Hever Castle. The childhood home of Anne Boleyn is topped by battlements and a fluttering flag, and surrounded by a moat. The landscaped gardens contain a 100-year-old yew tree maze. Inside, the panelled rooms were restored in the early 20th century by American William Waldorf Astor, and the castle’s Edwardian story is as fascinating as its Tudor and medieval heritage.
See Anne’s signature in her two prayer books, and walk through her bedroom and the chamber where Henry VIII stayed. You could sleep here too, in the luxury bed and breakfast in the Astor Wing.
