Stand out moments for me:
*Being in Anne’s bedroom, I could imagine her looking out the window. I did too!
*The love letters from Henry
*The Tudor paintings
*The room they said was Henry’s
Hair standing up on my arms moments:
*Her book of Hours, *The words: Remember me
*The gallery – there is a long gallery which has full life-size figures of Henry and the six wives. The ladies are all different. Each has their own manner of dress, hair, jewelry and expression. I was really taken by this room but seeing Henry VIII and Anne standing alone together it gave me cold chills right up my spine I tell you. History coming alive!
There a room filled with instruments of torture. YIKES! Creepy stuff in there!
The gounds here are very impressive here. There is much to see and do. We never got to complete all of it but we did see tents, heard merry music, saw some of the stunning gardens, archery lessons, fountains and swans, swans-to-be as well. There were four eggs in the nest and the attendant told me in about two-weeks they will hatch. I believe we were off to find the garden maze and instead found a splashing water maze. Like nice adults we stand there a bit and watch the kids skipping along the rocks and getting wet laughing like crazy. Some rocks have triggers on them and you will get wet! The object is to get to the center without getting wet. So fun !!! Oh and once you leave the Hever Castle lot, guess what's right there, a pub called the Henry VIII Inn.
