Newest Review: ... vast lake and some luscious green gardens where families were already sitting with children who were running around and playing. The walk to the castle was very pleasant indeed and it really wasn't that far and with stopping to take photos and just going at a steady pace, I coped with it very well. We arrived at the Norman gatehouse which was very impressive especially as it was part of the ... more

Leeds Castle August 2011 after doing our annual trip to Belgium for hubby's tobacco, we decided to stay over night at a Premier Inn and visit Leeds Castle the following day before heading home. Anyone that reads my reviews will know I love historical buildings and the UK has these in abundance; every year we pass signs for Leeds Castle and I have finally got to visit it. ~~ A little spot of history ~~ The records of Leeds Castle dates back as far as 855 when it was known as the 'manor of Esledes' and was owned by a Saxon Royal family. Before the Norman Conquest, King Edward the confessor granted the manor to the house of Godwin, whose ... Read the complete review

Leeds Casle is a a public attraction in Maidstone Kent (not Leeds further North as some get confused by the name). It is a castle built by Henry the VIII accompanied by a lot of well kept land. The Castle and grounds are open to the public, for a fee. The best thing about Leed's Castle is once you pay once you get to come back for a whole year for free, so if you make the most of this, it makes superb value. The castle itself is fully furnished and modelled to different eras. It is incredibly interesting seeing all the furnishings, reading all the history and seeing how people lived. It is decorated on top of that according to the season, and it is unmissable ... Read the complete review

Leeds Castle, near Maidstone in Kent, is reputed to be the most beautiful castle in England. I'm not sure if I would agree with this statement as I think there are many beautiful castles in this lovely country, but it is certainly beautiful and well worth a visit. I have been fortunate enough to have visited Leeds castle 3 times within the past year and have enjoyed it every time. The great thing about the entry tickets is that they are valid for an entire year after purchase: Adults ticket: £16.50 Concession ticket: £13.50 Child ticket: £9.50 Audio tour: £3.00 There is plenty of free parking available. Leeds Castle was built in the ... Read the complete review

A lovely idyllic place to visit lurks not too far from London. From the M20/M25 junction you can get to this place in about half an hour without breaking the sound barrier. I'm a tad more fortunate as I can get to this place in around 5-10 minutes from where I live. Leeds castle is set in the heart of Kent. It's a splendid little attraction and on a clement day can be a most pleasing experience. It lies next to a village called Leeds (not the city up in Yorkshire) and is very well signposted. Upon arrival you will be directed to an appropriate parking bay by a friendly steward. A brief walk among the grounds soon brings you to the ... Read the complete review
