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.
