Hever Castle

South East, Kent

Hever Castle

Hever Castle is a wonderfully historic venue and dates back as far as 1270. Set in over 600 acres, including a 38 acre lake, it is most famous for being the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, one of Henry VIII's ill-fated wives.

Purchased by the American William Waldorf Astor in 1903, who restored the Castle, developed the award winning gardens and created the Astor Wing, an Edwardian wing designed in Tudor style. The Astor Wing is surrounded by private lawns offering a terrace for drinks receptions and a croquet lawn, a private outdoor heated pool and a tennis court. 

Today Hever Castle and the adjoining Astor Wing are available all year round on an 'exclusive use' basis for conferences, day meetings, private lunches and dinners. Taking just one group at any one time guarantees the privacy and seclusion to ensure any event is a success.

The Astor Wing offers 28 five star bedrooms, individually designed to a very high standard with en-suite facilities but this can be increased to 32 by incorporating medley Court.  

Medley Court, is the 'five star gold' graded self catering cottage sleeping up to eight guests in four bedrooms.  The house has been superbly restored and refurbished to the highest standard retaining all of Astor’s handcrafted wood panelling.

The Castle Dining Hall and the Castle Inner Hall are both available to hire for dinner.  Both rooms are steeped in history and have been superbly restored with fine wood panelling and a carved Minstrels Gallery.

A range of exciting outdoor team building activities can also be organised within the grounds from clay pigeon shooting and duck herding through to motorised sports.

In addition the award winning Hever Castle Golf Club boasts an 18-hole championship course, known as the Kings & Queens, to test even the most accomplished golfer.

The newly refurbished Guthrie Pavilion presents the largest event space available at Hever Castle and offers an ideal setting for dinner dances, charity events, cocktail parties, conferences or awards ceremonies. Set within the Award Winning Italian Garden, the Gutrhrie Pavilion enjoys breathtaking views over the lake, making it an idyllic setting for any event. The beautiful flower clad pergola outside the Guthrie Pavailion allows guests to wonder outside to breath in the beauty of this special place. 

Marquee events can be hosted on the Winter Garden Lawn which is adjacent to the Castle, for up to 600 guests. This private lawn takes in views accross the moat to the Castle.

I would like to express my extreme gratitude for the most beautiful event both throughout the day and evening at Hever Castle on 21st December.


Your venue and staff are top class.  The day had a luxurious but relaxed atmosphere about it, allowing the directors to get on with their meeting whilst the spouses had fun around the gardens with the wonderful head gardener Neil.  Nicola and Chris were fantastic, where nothing was too much trouble including an impromptu visit around the Castle before dinner.  Having the Astor Wing completely to ourselves put a completely different emphasis on our day, ensuring that the partners felt welcome and free to move around including staying in the individual and opulent rooms.  Ria and her team provided superb food within the historical rooms, a true feat in itself.  The late bar was also a hit!

Many thanks Stephanie to you and your team for your amazing attention to detail – it was indeed an event that we will always remember and we look forward to seeing you again soon.


Brigade Electronics

First of all I would like to say a massive thank you on behalf of all Brigade staff and their families for a lovely day last Saturday.  Even though we were unfortunate with the weather and had a deluge of rain about 3pm it didn’t dampen people’s spirits!! 

The Hever staff were extremely friendly, helpful and made every effort to make our day go smoothly.  Please pass on our sincere thanks to all of them.

We have also had many favourable comments about the food and how good it was – again can you pass on this feedback to the kitchen staff and thank them for the delicious food!


On another note, my boss the MD, was given a tour of your facilities by one of the staff.  We are now very interested in maybe having one of our “Overseas Sales Conferences” at Hever.  Please could you send me any information you have on the packages you offer i.e. meeting space, accommodation, meals, etc.



Just a brief and inadequate note to say “thank you” to you and the whole team at Hever Castle for a simply wonderful stay.


The conference was a great success and though the sessions themselves were pretty intense and challenging, the surroundings and the excellent quality of the food, service and environment made it a superb event. Nothing was ever too much trouble and even last minute changes and requirements were met faultlessly and with great care and attention. Everyone had a wonderful time and was full of praise for the entire team at Hever.



Please thank your team for an excellent offsite. The accommodation, food and service was all outstanding as well as being a privilege to stay in the Castle and have the private tour and the opening up of the maze.  It will be 24 hours we won't forget!
