The team at Hever Castle & Gardens in Kent are now taking bookings for 2021, which includes tickets to annual events, such as Hever in Bloom and Dazzling Daffodils.

Hever Castle

Hever Castle in Kent is the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII’s second wife.

Bookings are now being taken for 2021 with changes to processes and procedures in line with the Government’s Covid-19 regulations. 

Staff are said to be “delighted” to be working with group travel organisers again, with all prices for 2021 remaining at 2020 rates if booked by 31st December 2020.

The events calendar at Hever Castle will begin with Snowdrop Walk, followed by Dazzling Daffodils and Tulip Celebrations in the spring. 

In the summer, Hever in Bloom is the castle’s annual garden event showcasing displays of more than 4,000 roses, with a craft fair available in September, Autumn Colour in October and its regular Christmas at Hever Castle experience to round off the year.

Group rates apply for 15 or more when the group arrives in the grounds together and the visit will need to be pre-booked and paid in one amount. All admission fees include entry to special events except where stated.
