Hever Village The small historic village of Hever, near Edenbridge, is set in beautiful unspoiled countryside, with farmland and woodlands surrounding it. Most visitors will come for Hever Castle impressive as it is and why Hever should be prominently on anyone's checklist of things to see in Kent, but the tiny village and river walks offers a really pleasant day out.

St.Peter's Church is situated in the centre of Hever next to Hever Castle which is less than two miles south east of Edenbridge. To reach Hever, follow the signs for Hever Castle via Hever Road at the southern end of the town.

The village is the site of Hever Castle, which is redolent of history and more than a little tragedy. The castle achieved its present form in 1272 when Sir Stephen de Penchester received permission from Edward I to convert his house at Hever into a castle. The massive Gatehouse, the outer walls and the moat strengthened its position as a fortification.

Two centuries later the Boleyn family bought the castle and rebuilt much of it, adding a comfortable Tudor residence inside the walls. It was here that the ill-fated Anne Boleyn, mother of Elizabeth I, was courted by Henry VIII.
