Hever Castle

Hever Castle inn Kent was the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, second wife of Henry VIII and mother of Queen Elizabeth the First. This double moated castle sits within 125 acres of stunning gardens and dates back to 1270.
Anne's ghost haunts the castle, appearing within its grounds on Christmas Day, when she is seen drifting silently over the bridge which crosses the river Eden.
There is also a miniature model houses exhibition which looks at country houses through the ages.
