Discovering Hever Castle

One of our best discoveries this year has been Hever Castle, just a hop, skip and jump from us in the beautiful Kent countryside. Not only does it have one of the best playgrounds known to children, but it also has the best ice cream too, and that as any parent knows is worth a visit in itself. The grounds are beautiful, immaculate and award winning. There’s a maze for little ones and grown ups to get lost in alike, a pristine boating lake with canoes, pedalos and row boats and it has history in spades.

Childhood home of Anne Boleyn, Hever Castle is most definitely worth a visit. Theres lots to do and lots on offer. In the two visits we have made in the last six months we still havent experienced everything that’s on offer at Hever. Often there are events like jousting and open air theatre shows on the grounds to take advantage of, then there’s the food which is almost as good as the ice cream.

There’s usually something to find fault with on days out like these, whether it’s the food which isn’t quite up to scratch, or the cleanliness of the toilets or the less than enthused staff. But I can honestly say that Hever Castle is an all round fantastic day out for families and I’d definitely recommend it for your next visit to Kent. We for one cant wait to go back!
