This is a wonderful place, both inside and out, and has an excellent and very well-deserved reputation, so it is not surprising that it gets very crowded.

The Internet told us that the place opens at 10:30, and we didn't see anything to the contrary until we got to the entrance door of the castle only to find that it didn't open till 1130. By this time there was a long queue to get in, the result being that the rooms were very crowded, and whenever someone stopped to read the many, most informative, information boards, the queue came to a grinding halt. This was particularly difficult as we were still very wary regarding COVID. Some of the passages and stairways are narrow and quite difficult for those with restricted mobility.

So the trick is to went for the queue to die down by enjoying the excellent gardens and refreshments.

Inside there is plenty to see and learn, both Tudor and 20th century, so do allow time to take it all in, if you can tour the building when it's not too busy.

This is a beautiful place. The gardens are interesting, full of well thought out designs and well kept. The castle is interesting, plenty to see and welllaid out
BUT
When we arrived so did 230 school children, aged ably 12 to 14.
They just swamped the whole experience. All let into the castle in larger groups one group after another they made it moist, chaotic and crowded. This is as Covid is on the rise again, exponentially. No masks on any one except us two pensioners.

When I asked if this could not have been better organised I was met with the following.

We gets lots of school children, they bring in a lot of money
Some of them might want to work here one day, they have to come in school hours.

The children were NOT interested in the castle, only in screaming and shouting at each other. I bet if set a quiz they would not have answered it well. There were just too many of them

It was suggested we leave the castle and come back later which we eventually did. It was not easy pushing through them all as the surged around us. They did not give us any space at all and at one point a large child, weighing much more than my husband toppled backwards nearly knocking him over.

I understand that having huge school groups makes a lot of money and are booked in by people who are never there to see how it works out.

The castle isn’t open until midday. So why not have the groups in the morning and suggest, on the website, others to visit in the afternoons?
Why not make smaller groups who might be interested in learning and have a guide talk them round.

The guides are lovely, the castle and environs really beautiful but the whole experience was ruined for me.

We did go back in at 3.00 pm after walking round the gardens. It was peaceful and gave me a better sense of the place. But I am a pensioner with much less energy and some walking restraints who looked forward and planned a trip to this part of the UK for quite a while. I am very disappointed that the Castle was not interested in making it a good experience for all its visitors rather than sacrificing us to financial gain.

Gardens not kept as well as expected. Nothing to boast about. The grass cutting is ruining the grass not that we were allowed to walk on it. Only one cafe open, slow service, insufficient seating especially when it rained.

The interior of the castle was worth the visit. The audio guide was comprehensive. Many of the rooms were very interesting but more about Anne Boleyn would have been good. The room guides could have been a little more interactive.

First off, this was an expensive visit, £43 for the two of us so it's not a cheap day out. They being said we had a fantastic day and the price was fair. The parking was well managed, there were plenty of staff throughout the site and the gardens were clean and well maintained.
The castle was wonderful - it's a small and mostly decorative building but the interior route is well laid out with lots of information and lots to see. The emphasis is obviously on Anne Boleyn and the Tudor history of the castle but other eras and the Astor restoration are also covered.
We missed the military museum and the island with the water maze and Anne of Cleeves Bower House but the Italian Garden, Rose Garden, Diana's Walk and the lawns were superb. The miniature houses display was an unexpected gem with the models of manor houses through the ages.
We were in the castle and grounds for about 4 hours and we could have spent another hour or two easily.

This is one of the most beautful castles I have visited (in 100s of historical sites) across the UK.

From a tudor perspective, it was truly astonishing, the grounds were the best I have ever seen in the UK.

Finding treasures within the grounds are there also.

Wouldnt definitely go back.

Have a huge interest in Tudor history so have wanted to visit Hever for ages. We visited on a lovely sunny Summer day which made the castle and surroundings look even more attractive than photos.
Enjoyed the tour of the castle aided by the the audio tour and the history and information explained. The gardens were a lovely surprise and I had not realised they were so beautiful and extensive. The Italian style garden and the lake were a pleasant surprise and the roses wonderful. We could have visited for longer but had to move on. Next time it would just be lovely to wander the lovely gardens and explore even more.

Our daughter suggested visiting here - she had been before and it turned out to be a very good recommendation. We had a lovely day.
The castle is very interesting to visit - the audio guide is very helpful and not too long.
The gardens are beautiful.

The castle is stunning and grounds beautiful. The castle is quite small can be easily experienced in a couple of hours. The grounds are larger and although lots of places to sit the food outlets get quite busy with limited choice I would recommend taking a picnic . We booked the greyhound pub for dinner which was superb.

Great day, so much to see and do for all the family. The audio in the castle is good, plenty of information about the people who were lucky enough to live there. The gardens are as good as Kew, the mazes amazing, so perfect for a day out.
Lots of clean loos, plenty of places to buy refreshments, lots of picnic areas and two shops, selling quirky stuff.
All the staff were friendly and so are the ducks.
