Hever Castle Day Out With kids, Hever Castle, Hever castle family day out,

**We paid to visit Hever Castle ourselves and all words and opinions are entirely our own, as always.

Last weekend we decided to take our boys to Hever Castle in Kent, a place we fell in love with two years ago when we stayed there for our wedding anniversary. Hever Castle if you don't already know was the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, the second wife of Henry VIII and previous Queen of England and as you'll know if you are a regular reader of my blog, I am utterly obsessed with royal English history, particularly the Tudor era - Hever Castle, therefore, is a pure slice of heaven to me.

There's something about Hever Castle, even besides the connection to Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII, it's hard to put into words, but it really is one of the most romantic places I've ever visited. The grounds and the gardens are just exquisite - there's so much to explore, see and do in the grounds, for all ages. And the castle itself is simply majestic, personally, I love that the castle isn't huge, though when I say that I don't mean it's small, because I'd still get lost in there within the many rooms and the different corridors, but it's not overpoweringly big. It's modest but still magnificently charming. 
I am SUCH a royal history lover. I honestly cannot get enough of reading about, watching, visiting, anything to do with the British monarch...
