Hever Castle and Gardens

I loved this place !

On my way to family north of London, Ally and I had a stopover at Hever castle, the childhood home of Ann Boleyn.

We were struck by the maturity of the garden, its many features and vast spaces. From the Italian garden to the House, the lake and the water maze, there is plenty to gaze at. The house has been wonderfully preserved and while visiting it, you are wooshed back into the Tudor times. Amazing woodwork, decoration, and a surprise in the main gallery. You can have access to all the floors, and the quaint arrangement of rooms, the narrow doorframes, the short corridors , the many doors, the steep narrow stairs and the furniture displayed : everything is successful.

I found this place truly inspiring, I shall certainly come back some time !
