Here is one compelling reason to visit Erwarton...
...Anne Boleyn’s heart.
It is believed that her heart was buried under St Mary’s church. A note under the organ states that "...after her execution in the Tower of London, 19 May 1536, it was recorded that her heart was buried in this church by her Uncle, Sir Philip Parker of Erwarton Hall".
So, aside from a great view provided by all the gorgeous flowers in Erwarton that add a pop of colour in a wide expanse of green, there's a heart that awaits you in this small village and civil parish in Suffolk.
Anne Boleyn in Erwarton
Legend has it that Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn often stayed at Erwarton Hall in Suffolk. She fell so much in love with the place that she left instructions that her heart should be buried in the local church. When Saint Mary's Church was renovated in 1838, a heart-shaped casket was found in the north aisle’s alcove and then re-buried beneath the church organ, thus, the note.
Unlike seeing Erwarton flowers, you’re unlikely to get a peek of the former queen’s heart. Nonetheless, it makes a good story that you've set foot in a church where Anne’s heart may have been buried. May, being the operative word because many believed that the discovery of the heart-shaped casket is just a story invented to establish a link with the fact that the former Queen and wife of Henry VIII had stayed and fell in love with Erwarton Hall.

St Mary's Church – The original church dates back to the 13th century, but the present building that stands today is largely 15th century. It is supposedly the home of Anne Boleyn’s heart, and the actual home of an organ that has a drawing of Queen Anne, which is a copy made by Holbein, a German and Swiss artist. The church’s baptismal font is adorned with a Tudor Rose.
Erwarton Hall - Rebuilt around 1575, this building has a gatehouse that is a well-known local landmark. It sits directly on the road through the village, showcasing a post-Reformation Gothic structure.
The Queens Head - This is a public house that dates back to the 17th century or earlier.
