Hever Town Image Three miles east of Edenbridge is the pretty village of Hever, with its clusters of beautiful buildings and Tudor houses.

One of these buildings is St Peter’s Church in which is found the Bullen Chapel, added in about 1465. The chapel contains the tomb of Sir Thomas Bullen, grandfather of Queen Elizabeth I.

Next to the church is Sir Thomas Bullen’s house, Hever Castle, the childhood home of Ann Boleyn (Bullen).

There are two pubs, the Greyhound Inn and the Henry VIII, selling real ale and locally produced food.

From Hever Station on the Uckfield/Victoria Line there are miles of picturesque walks through the valley towards Edenbridge, Chiddingstone and Penshurst.

Hever Castle Golf Course is one of the most attractive in the county. It includes the infamous 17th hole which, at 644 yards, is one of the longest in Europe. Next door is the Hever Hotel.
