We discovered St Peter's after walking on a little bit from Hever Castle (which was unfortunately shut when we visited) and we were so glad that we did. It was beautiful and peaceful and the history part wasn't too shabby either.More

We visited here after a tour of Hever Castle. The tomb of Thomas (Bullen)Boleyn is here. Unfortunately there were also some hornets so our visit was a short one.
