Tudor Tales at Hever Castle

Step back in time and experience what it was like to live in Tudor England during Hever Castle’s Tudor Tales (28 & 29 July).

Discover what life was like when English swordsmen ruled the battlefield, learn about the history of Tudor knights and cheer as men at arms battle it out in the arena, competing to prove their prowess.

Wander among the tents and immerse yourself in medieval times as re-enactors demonstrate authentic Tudor crafts, armour making, cookery, weaving and games as well as play music on traditional instruments such as bagpipes and drums.

The popular Summer Jousting Tournament will be in full swing, so don’t miss the procession from the Castle forecourt as Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn lead visitors through the grounds to the Jousting Arena.

Round off a memorable day with a spot of shield painting* for the kids or get the whole family involved in ‘Have-a-go-Archery’* (*additional charge). Children (and the young at heart) are sure to love the fun of the Water Maze to cool down on a warm summers’ day.
