Leeds Castle in Kent

Leeds Castle – “the loveliest castle in the world”


Iconically English and astonishingly beautiful, visit the alluring Leeds Castle in picturesque Kent.  With 900 years of history to be uncovered and 500 acres of majestic parkland to explore, Leeds Castle is well worth a visit. 
Begin with a journey through nine centuries of heritage: originally the site of a Saxon manor, the Castle has been a Norman stronghold, a royal residence for six medieval Queens of England, a favourite palace of Henry VIII and a grand treasure house.
Many of the rooms showcase both medieval and Tudor periods, while the influence of Lady Baillie, who used the finest French architects and designers to create an elegant country residence in the 20thC, brings the state rooms to life.  Paintings, antiques and tapestries fill the Castle.
Gardens provide continuous colour throughout the year, from spring bulbs in the Wood Garden to herbs and roses in the quintessentially English Culpeper Garden, and late flowering borders in the Mediterranean-style Lady Baillie Garden.  The grounds and riverside offer lovely walks. 
Test your sense of direction in the spiralling yew maze and return through the underground grotto of shells and mythical beasts.  Children can conquer their very own fort in the wooden Knights’ Realm Adventure Playground, based on a scale model of the castle.  There’s also a toddlers’ play area and turf maze.
