    The beautiful, double-moated Hever Castle was the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, second wife of King Henry VIII, and a new permanent exhibition will tell the story of three key moments in her dramatic rise to courtly favour.

    This video, featuring Dame Judi Dench, shows she shares our affection for the castle, which she says is very dear to her and her family.

    Dame Judi Dench says: “We come to it in all weathers, in all seasons, and this is where we come to recharge our batteries.”
