Leeds Castle

Visitors never forget their first breath-taking vision of Leeds Castle in Kent, rising majestically from the moat as it has done since the 12th Century.

With 500 acres of beautiful parkland and formal gardens, daily events and year round attractions, it’s not just the glorious history of Leeds Castle that will ensure you want to come back time and time again. Leeds Castle has been a Norman stronghold; the private property of six of England’s medieval queens; a palace used by Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon; a Jacobean country house; a Georgian mansion and an elegant early 20th century retreat.

There are many attractions to see at Leeds Castle from the beautiful English cottage style Culpeper Garden to the Lady Baillie Mediterranean Garden, maze and grotto, falconry displays, shops, children’s’ playgrounds and much more.

Leeds Castle also offers Holiday Cottages, luxury Bed and Breakfast bedrooms and the medieval Knight’s Glamping tents.  In addition, twenty luxury bedrooms, ranging from battlement bedrooms to state rooms, can be booked as part of a private event within the near 900-year old Castle.
