“Only 35 minutes drive. Visit Hever Castle & Gardens for the perfect day out in Kent. My children particularly enjoyed the water maze and still do to this day. Experience 700 years of history at the romantic double-moated castle once the childhood home of Anne Boleyn. Discover magnificent award-winning gardens set in 125 acres of glorious grounds. No matter what time of year you visit you are guaranteed a breath-taking display.
