Leeds Castle is in Kent, England, 5 miles (8 km) southeast of Maidstone. A castle has been on the site since 1119. In the 13th century it came into the hands of King Edward I, for whom it became a favourite residence; in the 16th century, Henry VIII used it as a residence for his first wife, Catherine of Aragon. The castle today dates mostly from the 19th century and is built on islands in a lake formed by the River Len to the east of the village of Leeds. It has been open to the public since 1976.Wikipedia

Whilst the admission price was a little high, at least you can tell it's spent on the attraction (update: I've actually just noticed the tickets are valid for a year, so not too bad if enjoyed it and want to go again). Had a very pleasant day looking around the grounds and the buildings. Very interesting learning and experiencing the history of the castle.
Couple of the rooms were closed due to a private function and the cost of £25 each for 2 tourists who won't be coming back within a year was certainly a little steep. Having said that there is plenty to see and do and we enjoyed the gardens, the castle, the Battle of Britain experience, the maze and especially the birds (unfortunately we just missed the falconry show). There is a ornate grotto attached to the maze and plenty of slightly overpriced (as expected) food and beverage options. Staff are helpful and friendly although a few seemed somewhat stressed...
Very nice castle and park. Lots of history to be shown and told during the tours. Really fantastic green around to explore and animals to see. In summer a very cool bird of prey show around 2pm. Entry tickets of 25£ a bit steep though.
Fully deserves the title of the "World's Loveliest Castle". Excellent couple of days here. Stayed at the accommodation in the grounds which was superb. All the staff here are informed, extremely professional and incredibly friendly and helpful. Was particularly impressed by the falconry area where the presentation and close up view of the birds was fascinating. The Segway is good fun as well. All in all a top location and we'll worth an investment of time
Such a lovely place, lots for the kids to see and do, and decent places to eat. Facilities are excellent, and the staff friendly and helpful. Expensive entry cost if you only go once, but your ticket is valid for a whole year, so the more you go the better value it gets.
