Leeds Castle, is, well, a long way from Leeds!

We visited Leeds Castle as part of our Treasure Hunt Challenge for the Camping and Caravanning Club.

The castle is the classic fairy tale castle, surrounded by a massive moat.

The moat is home to a number of different types of ducks, geese, and swans, including lots of black swans.

Inside the castle, there are classic medieval looking rooms as well as more modern looking rooms, which make it easy to forget that you are in an old stone castle in the middle of a lake.
