If you are planning on a staycation in the UK then here is a place to visit courtesy of a guided tour by Robbie Cheadle… head over to enjoy Robbies lovely photographs of the interior…
During our trip to the UK in April 2016, we visited Hever Castle in Kent. Hever Castle was the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, the second wife of King Henry XIII and mother of Queen Elizabeth I. Anne Boleyn was the first of the two wives Henry had beheaded. I always remember what happened to each of his six wives because of this little verse I learned at school:
Divorced, beheaded, died
Divorced, beheaded, survived.
Hever Castle was restored by William Waldorf Astor in the 20th century and it is very glamorous and beautiful with amazing carvings, tapestries and furniture. I enjoyed our visit and seeing all the lovely things in this restored and renovated castle, but I didn’t like it nearly as much as the more authentic castles we’ve visited like Dover Castle, Eilean Donan and Dunvegan (the second two are in Scotland).
Here are some of the pictures I took during our visit:
