Hever Castle is the ancestral home of Anne Boleyn. I've been fortunate enough to visit it a few times. Obviously the castle has changed over the years but you definitely get a feel of what life was like for the Boleyns.
The castle is set amongst some fabulous gardens and is surrounded by a moat.
This is the church near the castle. Anne Boleyn's father, Sir Thomas Boleyn, is buried here.
Hever Castle has some wax figures at the castle. This model is of Anne Boleyn, clutching in her hand the locket snatched from Jane Seymour after Anne reportedly found her with her husband, Henry VIII. There is also a model of Henry and Jane in the background.

For me, the highlights of Hever Castle - 2 prayers books owned by Anne Boleyn. Priceless!
