New Anne Boleyn exhibition

A new permanent exhibition focusing on the life of Anne Boleyn has opened at her childhood home – Hever Castle in Kent. The exhibition, in the Long Gallery, uses costumed figures to illustrate three key events in her life. The original medieval castle was built in 1270. The Bullen family added the Tudor dwelling within its walls, living there during the 15th and 16th centuries. Its panelled rooms contain fine furniture, tapestries, an important collection of Tudor portraits and artefacts including two Books of Hours signed and inscribed by Anne Boleyn.
