We visited the church whilst at Hever Castle. The door was open for visitors. There were information sheets at the entrance to read on the history of the church. Lots to look at and worth a visit.

My daughter and I found this church after a visit of Hever Castle grounds. We had no idea of its existence but were excited to learn that the Boleyn family worshipped here. Thomas Bullen (Boleyn), father of Anne, is entombed here. So glad we visited.

We visited the church on our way back to the hotel. The church is very old, with several different reconstructions. The best part was seeing Thomas Boleyn's tomb (father of Anne) and all the wonderful brasses.

We found this on the way back to the car having visited Hever Castle. We had no idea about it but so glad we visited, it ended a beautiful day out. I love the stained glass window. There is quite a history here, it was also the Boleyns family church.So worth a visit, please make a donation before you leave.... More

We went to visit the tomb of Thomas Boleyn. One lucky member of the family who escaped Henry VIII wrath and died of natural causes.

No many opportunities in life to see an ancient tomb kept in such a magnificent state. Makes a day complete after visiting the castle

Popped in after touring Hever Castle (easy walking distance). Sir Thomas Boleyn, father-in-law of Henry VIII, is buried inside this 750-year-old church. A perfect place to contemplate this family's place in English history.

Original church and it felt like it. Loved the visit and found the headstones quite mind blowing. Wonderful that all this has been persevered over this long time. Makes you think about the pace of life today and all this has been there for such a long time , used and enjoyed.

Place full with character with his period cemetery. Can't vouch for the interior as it was an impromptu drone session. Didnt get to visit the church but it is worth taking a walk around, stop at the pub see the cemetery
