Leeds Castle - Discover 900 Years of Epic History.
 
Visitors never forget their first breath-taking view of Leeds Castle in Kent, rising majestically from the still waters of its moat. The heritage attraction boasts 500 acres of beautiful parkland and formal gardens to explore, as well as a number of year-round activities and attractions. And now there’s truly no better time to visit Leeds Castle as it celebrates 900 years of history with an extra special programme of events. What first began as a Norman stronghold, Leeds Castle has since been the private property of six medieval queens; a palace owned by Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon and an elegant early 20th century retreat. Today, visitors can enjoy historic tours of the Castle, the maze and grotto, falconry displays, children’s playgrounds, and punting on the moat. And why not extend your visit with an overnight stay in one of our indulgent Bed and Breakfast rooms or Knight’s Glamping tents? There are also charming self-catering Holiday Cottages sleeping up to 14 people around the estate.
