Leeds CastleKent Category Outdoor Activities, For the Family
Set in 500 acres of beautiful parkland, a visit to Leeds Castle in the garden of England is full of discovery. Open all year round, its special blend of heritage and history, glorious gardens, attractions, programme of events, and licensed restaurant make it the perfect choice for a day out.
Visitors are transported through the castle’s history; an eclectic mix of period architecture, with sumptuous interiors and family treasures.
Their internationally renowned aviaries offer a fascinating glimpse into the world of modern conservation and captive breeding programmes. 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.
Conferences, meetings, weddings and banquets can also be arranged in the castle and other areas on the estate.
Leeds Castle is not just a museum but also a place where people meet and special events bring the grounds to life.
There is also a 9 hole pay and play golf course, offering stunning views of the castle, with challenging holes.
