Hever Castle, kent

Castles

Of the 100 or so castles in England, more than 30 are in the South East due to the fact that historically the region has always been vulnerable to attack from foreign shores.

Kings and Queens throughout the ages turned South East England into the fortress of Britain, by building some of the most impressive and imposing castles in England. Built to last, the castles make fascinating places to visit and the South East has them in abundance.

Arundel Castle in Sussex looms high on a hill overlooking the town; Herstmonceux Castle in East Sussex  set peacefully amongst tranquil and picturesque gardens; Guildford Castle in Surrey has a Norman keep that is almost intact; and one of the most famous castles in England – Windsor Castle – is still inhabited by the monarch of the realm.

Castles in Kent

Great castles of England located in Kent include Leeds Castle, a serene fairytale castle surrounded by a moat and Hever Castle with its spectacular gardens, once home to Anne Boleyn. Finally, saving one of the best until last, Dover Castle sits proudly atop the White Cliffs of Dover and boasts one of the best views from any of the castles in England.
