Young Queen putting on a crown


Immerse yourself in the world of Leeds Castle's seven historic queens, as we take you on an untold journey through Medieval and Tudor times. Gifted, educated, cultured and intelligent conversationalists, these women were born and raised to marry English Monarchs.

Launching on 29th July 2022, Queens with Means is a brand new cinematic experience which gives back the voices of our seven historic queens, including Katherine of Aragon, as we reveal their true stories, in their own voices.

As the queens hold court in the Gatehouse, the latest video-mapping technology and unique lighting, sound and visual effects have been used to create a compelling and empathic journey, as the queens step out of the shadows of history.

The experience will last approximately 7 minutes, where guests will then be invited to delve into the history of the Castle, before they experience Lady Baillie’s 1930s country house retreat.

This attraction is included with your annual admission ticket.

Please note, Queens with Means is a cinematic film which includes flashing images.
