"Tudor Village" with WiFi

Hever Castle
Originally uploaded by youngie42

Hever Castle in Kent is best known as the home of Anne Boleyn. Next to the castle is what looks like a well-preserved Tudor village, but appearances can be deceptive.

The "Village" was in fact built in the early 1900's by William Waldorf Astor after he bought the castle in 1903. He asked architect Frank Loughborough Pearson to create a fine country house extension, and Pearson designed it as a collection of Tudor cottages.

Now the Tudor Village hosts corporate events and weddings, so you can have WiFi and Broadband with your Tudor atmosphere, without the damp and dodgy sanitation.
