Leeds Castle, set on two islands on the River Len in the heart of Kent, has been home to royalty, lords and ladies for more than 900 years.
Visitors are transported through the castles history; an eclectic mix of period architecture, sumptuous interiors and family treasures waiting to be discovered.
Swans glide on the moat and waterways, peacocks wander through the grounds and birds of prey soar on the wind during our falconry displays.
The gardens offer continuous colour throughout the year. From a mass of spring bulbs and wild flowers in the Wood Garden, through fragrant herbs and roses in the quintessentially English Culpeper Garden, to late flowering borders in the drought-resistant Mediterranean Lady Baillie Garden.
There is also a 9-hole pay and play golf course, offering stunning views of the castle and grounds.
