Castle / Fort

Leeds Castle is one of the most spectacular castles in the UK and your first view of the castle will be one you remember, as it is both classical and spectacular. The castle sits serenely on its island in the middle of the moat, with its crenulations, stone buttresses, bridges and arches. There is much to discover. This castle has been described as “The loveliest castle in the world”.<br /><br />The castle has changed significantly over the centuries and the computer generated images in the interpretation centre describes this perfectly, right through it original medieval beginnings until Lady Ballie’s ownership. The castle was left in trust by Lady Ballie for people to enjoy.<br /><br />There is plenty of car parking on site close to the ticket office and whilst there is a bit of a walk into the castle, there is also a regular land train which takes those who find walking more difficult to just outside the castle keep. <br /><br />Exploring this elegant and distinctive home is well worth the time. Many famous people have stayed here as friends of Lady Ballie and you can discover who during the first part of the tour.<br /><br />After the castle visit make your way over the restaurant and cafés in the courtyard and then on into the gardens and on into the falconry area to see times of the displays.<br /><br />The maze and the grotto are wonderful fun and a good place to explore. But remember where you have been and which way you have turned. This is not a straight forward maze and it has its challenges but to get to the grotto you have to first conquer the maze. Help is on hand if you get stuck.<br /><br />A number of very good events take place at Leeds Castle every year and so checking out our What’s On pages is a must.<br />
