Beautiful by design and first-class hostess to royalty, nobility, and glamorous guests for over 900 years, Leeds Castle in Maidstone, rises majestically from the water in the stunning Kentish countryside.

With its riveting history serving six of England’s medieval queens to its elaborate transformation into an elegant 20th-century retreat by Anglo-American heiress Lady Baillie, Leeds Castle’s rich heritage has secured its place as one of the most visited historical attractions in Britain.
