Photographer's Note

The Tudor Village at Hever Castle was built in the first part of the 19th century as guest rooms. It is now used a conference centre.

Some information about the Village from the castle's official web site:

“William Waldorf Astor acquired Hever Castle in 1903. He restored the 13th Century moated Castle and added the unique Tudor Village before creating a 35 acre lake and spectacular Italian Gardens.

The Tudor Village was designed by architect, Frank Loughborough Pearson, to appear from the exterior as though it were a collection of Tudor cottages. His brief was to create a splendid country house extension to the castle to accommodate the Astor family and guests. It was built in Tudor style with all the rooms linked internally by corridors.

There are twenty individually designed luxurious bedrooms with lavish amounts of oak panelling in truly unique surroundings. There is the possibility of dining in the Dining Hall of Hever Castle, which is steeped in history, and is able to cater for up to 40 guests, or alternatively the Tudor Suite Dining Hall, able to cater for up to 64.”
