over 6 years by Gail Fanning 4 / 5Enjoyed Hever all around: the knights jousting, the family history, the topiary chess garden, the water maze, the rose garden... and so much more. Very crowded the day we were there, but if you stay late you can have some more quiet moments to enjoy.
about 7 years by Adam Hodge 3 / 5An extraordinary place! SO many different styles and yet the most bizarre is the Italian Garden. On can imagine Edwardian ladies and Gentleman promenading along the paths. Many aspects reflect the fabulous wealth of Mr Astor. Many of the little planted gardens to your left as one advances to the lake are so naff its unbelievable, and yet in the middle is a very pleasantly planted garden surronded by a Yew Hedge.
