Hever Castle's "Haunted House Story" The ghost of Anne Boleyn is said to return to her old home at Hever Castle, where every Christmas Eve she is seen to walk over the bridge which crosses the River Eden in the castle grounds. The great oak, under which Henry VIII courted Anne, still stands. Her ghost has been seen there as well, usually at Christmas time. Another ghost at Hever is that of a local farmer, called Humphrey, who was robbed and killed there.

I believe in ghost.......................but I don't believe that Anne still haunts! Why, because in the end she was [resigned] too her fate! She is MOST HAPPY on the otherside! But it makes for good story telling. Hever is the MOST BEAUTIFUL Castle in my eyes.

The Ghost Hunters show did an episode on Hever Castle saying Anne Boleyn can still be seen walking the grounds of Hever Castle. Anyone believe this?
