Hidden Hever

Kent’s fantastic Hever Castle is throwing open some of the doors not usually open to the public as part of its new tour.

Up to 15 people at a time can take part in the Hidden Hever tour, where they’ll get to see William Waldorf Astor’s study (with its secret panel), the boys’ bedrooms created by William, Lord Astor’s bathroom, which is accessed via a secret panel, and Lady Irene Astor’s pink bathroom.

Guests will also be treated to stories and anecdotes relating to the rooms visited and discover more about the social history of Hever Castle.

The tour, which costs £45 per person and is for adults only as it’s more in depth, is an hour-and-a-half, starting at 10am. Following their tour visitors are welcome to stay in the gardens until closing.
