Leeds Castle has been a Norman stronghold; the private property of six of England’s medieval queens; a palace used by Henry VIII and his first wife Catherine of Aragon; a Jacobean country house; a Georgian mansion; an elegant early 20th century retreat for the influential and famous. But, in the 21st century, Leeds Castle has become one of the most visited historic buildings in Britain.  Welcoming over 600,000 visitors a year, the castle hosts weddings, conferences and a wide variety of family events all within the beautiful gardens and castle interiors. With brilliant events covering music, theatre, cinema, exhibitions, tours and workshops, Leeds Castle is the perfect location for everyone!
