Discover almost 900 years of history and explore 500 acres of beautiful parkland and gardens at Leeds Castle in Kent.
Leeds Castle, is, well, a long way from Leeds!
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.
Here are some more pictures we took on our visit to Leeds Castle.
