The castle with the draw bridge on the right, I just loved the topiary trees.
Me in front of the draw bridge and my purchases from the gift shop, this was our last day in England and I had to spend the remaining pounds ;-)
Once you are through the gate you find yourself in a courtyard with a Tudor facade. We weren't allowed to take any photos of the inside.
The kitchen, guest quarters, etc that was added by the American William Waldorf Astor in the early 1900's after he bought the castle in 1903.
Me in the lovely winter gardens, I loved the beauty of the bare branches against the green hedges and lawn, our lawn in South Africa dies in winter, not a pretty sight at all.
After you walk for seemingly miles through the gardens, you get to a man made lake, just beautiful, it was really cold that day, if you look carefully you can see the top layer of water is frozen in places.
There is also a wonderful miniatures collection at Hever, more about that in a next post.
Have a great day
