Fall in love with your loved one again…but don’t lose your head

Hever, Kent

Sneak away to Hever Castle, where one of history’s greatest love affairs blossomed when Henry VIII courted the young Anne Boleyn.

Retrace the steps of Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII in the place where their hot-blooded romance began. Start at the Boleyn family home, Hever Castle, where Henry VIII pursued his bride to be. The fairy-tale castle is as beguiling as the ill-fated queen herself. Couples can pre-order a champagne picnic and explore the gardens, gaze across the lake, or steal kisses in panelled corridors. When night falls, head to the sumptuous Astor Wing for an unforgettable night’s stay in 5* accommodation and after-hours access to the grounds.

In the morning, continue your adventure at Penshurst Place (15 minutes away) where scenes from Wolf Hall and The Other Boylen Girl were filmed, and explore the impressive Baron's Hall and lush gardens.
