Castle / Fort

Visitors never forget their first breath-taking vision of Leeds Castle in Kent, rising majestically from the moat as it has done for over 900 years. 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 demonstrations, shops, children’s’ playgrounds, punting and much more.

Leeds Castle also offers five holiday cottages, 17 luxury bed and breakfast bedrooms and five bedrooms in the Maiden’s Tower as well as eight Medieval 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 900-year old castle.

New exhibition spaces include; The Gatehouse, an exhibition on the history of the Castle and the Exhibition Centre, which will display temporary exhibitions, including the Dog Collar Collection.

Leeds Castle is located near Maidstone in Kent just off Junction 8 of the M20 and only one hour’s drive from London.
