Hever Castle & Gardens is the perfect setting for a great day out if you fancy getting out of London as its just 45 minutes on the train to Edenbridge Town Station.
This castle and gardens in Kent is a great place for history lovers and horticultural lovers alike plus you can take boat rides or even try your hand at archery, paint a shield or watch a jousting event!
Hever Castle dates back to the 13th century and was once the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, second wife of Henry VIII and Mother of Elizabeth I and formed the unlikely backdrop to a sequence of tumultuous events that changed the course of Britain’s history, monarchy and religion.
Its splendid panelled rooms contain fine furniture, tapestries, antiques and an important collection of Tudor portraits. Two beautifully illuminated prayer books on display in the Book of Hours Room belonged to Anne Boleyn and bear her inscriptions and signature. One is believed to be the prayer book Anne took with her to her execution at the Tower.
The charming castle at Hever has a rich and varied history. Today much of what you see is the result of the remarkable efforts of a wealthy American, William Waldorf Astor, who used his fortune to restore and extend the Castle in the early 20th century.
Despite its splendour, Hever Castle is what everyone wants a castle to be: moated, haunted, with lots of armour and gruesome torture devices. A permanent exhibition in the Long Gallery brings the 16th century to life with costumed figures illustrating key events in Anne’s life at the Castle.
The gardens of Hever Castle are magnificent and award winning, set in 125 acres of glorious grounds. The Loggia, overlooking the 38-acre lake, is the perfect spot to relax before exploring the many cascades, grottos and fountains. Visitors of all ages can enjoy the challenge of finding their way through the Water maze and the 100 year old Yew Maze.Read More
Lee Valley Regional Park offers hundreds of great days out, it has award winning open spaces and sports venues along the 26 mile long, 10,000 acre park. The park was created by a unique Act of Parliament as a “green lung” for London, Essex and Hertfordshire. Their approach is to be community focused and commercially driven, to work with partners to produce a unique combination of activities, sights and experiences for everyone to enjoy.
Lee Valley Leisure Trust came into operation on 1 April 2015 to run 14 of the major sports venues and other sites owned by Lee Valley Regional Park Authority. The Trust is part of the Authority's aspiration to establish Lee Valley Regional Park as a world class visitor destination and commitment to utilise public funds as efficiently and effectively as possible.Read More
Hackney Empire is a grade II* listed building. The theatre was built as a music hall in 1901, designed by the architect Frank Matcham.

ATV bought the theatre to use as studios in the 1950s, and shows such as Take Your Pick and Oh, Boy! were broadcast live. Certain episodes of Opportunity Knocks were also filmed at the theatre. From 1963 to 1984 the theatre was used by the Mecca Organisation as a bingo hall.Read More
