Attraction Information

Hever Castle is a delight to explore with your little ones. Come on a trip to a historic castle and gardens that was built all the way back in 1270.

Make your way to the Tudor Towers Adventure playground, where you’ll find three slides, and lots of interactive features to keep your family busy.

From Easter to October your family will be able to wonder at the 100 year old Yew hedge maze, pop over to Sixteen Acre Island for a water maze, or have a go at archery for the first time. Rowing boats and canoes are available for hire so you’ll be able to explore the beautiful nearby lake.

  • A castle that’s over seven hundred years old
  • Special audio tour just for children
  • 100-year-old Yew Hedge Maze
