Hever Castle began as a country house, built in the 13th century. From 1462 to 1539 it was the seat of the ‘Bullen’, family later known as the Boleyn family. Anne Boleyn, the second queen consort of King Henry VIII of England, spent her early youth there, after her father, Thomas Boleyn had inherited it in 1505.

It later came into the possession of King Henry VIII’s fourth wife, Anne of Cleves.
