Spellbound Summer at Hever Castle

Throughout the summer holidays (22 July – 31 August) take part in a series of free hands-on activities and enter the magic of Hever.

Join our resident sorcerers and learn the tricks of the trade. Find out how to cast spells and how to execute the perfect wand waving technique. Pick up your broomstick and defend the castle from the dragon. Come dressed as fairy-tale characters, your favourite witch or wizard or perhaps as a brave knight and the best dressed will receive a certificate. The list goes on!

Timings and Location:

Spellbound Summer begins daily at: 11:30, 12:30, 14:00, 15:00 and 16:00 on the Winter Lawn (next to archery).


Oh no, the Knights of Royal England have lost their shields. Can you help find them? You’ll need to walk all around the gardens to track them down.


Once you’ve found the shields, head into the Castle and see if you can spot numerous eggs that have been laid by the dragon.

(*Castle ticket required)
