Hever Castle

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 this region o the UK 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, imposing and famous castles in England. Built to last, the castles make fascinating places to visit and the South East has them in abundance.

Hastings Castle, Arundel Castle and Lewes Castle in Sussex loom high on hills overlooking their respective towns and offering great views; 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 in Berkshire – 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. Hever also makes for an idyllic location for a castle wedding  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.
