Dazzling colours, seductive scents, superb seasonal shows – Kent’s gardens are rightly world-renowned.

Kent's blockbuster, historic estates excel outside as well as in. Hever Castle boasts 125 acres of stunning gardens that were voted the south east's most romantic by Gardener's World - they even have their own rose, launched by Dame Judi Dench.

Each key stage of its development is captured, from early Norman beginnings through 300 years of royal ownership to Henry VIII’s resplendent Tudor Palace, then many centuries of private ownership and onto its most recent incarnation as a sumptuous country retreat. This extraordinary story is beautifully recreated through original artefacts, expert historical detail, illustration and film.
