Hever Castle has played host to many important events and celebrations for over 700 years. In 1903 when William Waldorf Astor set about restoring Hever Castle to its former glory, he added the Astor Wing, to accommodate his family and guests, before creating a lake and the spectacular Italian Garden to house his impressive collection of ancient Greek and Roman statuary.
Today the Astor Wing together with the Guthrie Pavilion in the Italian Garden and areas of the Castle itself are available for corporate and private events. Each venue has its own unique character and offers peace, privacy and seclusion in one of the most historic and beautiful settings in England.
TWO UNIQUE VENUES FOR CORPORATE EVENTS
Hever Castle, the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, offers two unique venues for corporate hospitality, the Astor Wing and the Guthrie Pavilion.
The Astor Wing, sympathetically built onto the castle by William Waldorf Astor in 1904, the Astor Wing boasts an impressive Tudor style meeting space, newly refurbished with state of the art audio visual facilities, suitable for up to 60 delegates. Dine in the castle in the evening and stay overnight in one of the 28 luxury, 5 star bedrooms.
The Guthrie Pavilion, located in the award-winning Italian Garden, this versatile, contemporary space accommodates up to 200 delegates. Offering the flexibility of being used for either a conference or a dinner, the Guthrie Pavilion is popular with clients requiring somewhere to meet in a peaceful location with space to spread out and brainstorm.
Combine either venue with team building activities in the grounds. Hever Castle also offers a championship golf course, an activities field for outdoor pursuits, an outdoor heated swimming pool and a tennis court.
Whether it’s an off-site meeting you are organising, a team building activity day, perhaps a company celebration, a summer party or Christmas party, or quite simply an opportunity to get away from the office, Hever Castle opens its doors to you and offers its beautiful facilities as a first-class venue.
We offer a number of different packages and a bespoke pricing structure dependent on your requirements.
