About Leeds Castle, Leatherhead
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

Leeds Castle, Leatherhead Reviews - Write a Review
My family took me to Leeds Castle as a part of my Birthday present.. We arrived late morning and as we were booked to stay for the night my daughter went to let them know that we had arrived.. Booking in time was from 2pm..They gave her information on what there was to do and times for each event. We were also given vouchers for a free drink in the restaurant...we got our drinks and then headed to the area near to the maze.. After eating our picnic we went to an area nearby to wait for the falconry display.. In the meantime my children went to the maze...they enjoyed it..The falconry display was really good.. We then went to the castle and enjoyed that too.. They were really helpful with us as my mother was in a wheelchair.. We had a really lovely stay at the hotel.. It was a little noisy because of the birds but we didn't mind. The breakfast was very good. I would definitely recommend it to anyone and would go back to do the activities we didn't get to do this time..
We are regular visitors to Leeds Castle and absolutely love going there. The woodland walk is tranquil and calm with many different species of trees and wildlife. The castle is beautiful and well looked after. The information given in very factual and informative. There is a wide variety of food and drink available for all. The children's activities are amazing and the adventure parks are awesome. The gardens are beautiful and full of species of plants and flowers. All in all a wonderful place to visit and is always a huge favourite with our family.
I guess it's a little expensive, but attractions of this kind always are, and this one is beautifully maintained. The ticket is also valid for a year, so if you plan to visit more than once, better value. It's a stunning place to visit, with fantastic gardens, and plenty to see in the castle itself. There's also an excellent hedge maze that you really can get lost in, a birds of prey area, and a few other bits and pieces worth a look. Not so great if the weather isn't good, but otherwise well worth seeing.
This is a beautiful place, but quite expensive if you only visit once. The admission price acts like a season ticket; you can go back as many times as you like (except for a couple of special events), so it becomes much better value the more you visit - and Leeds Castle really is worth more than one visit.
We came for the fireworks display. Was a great evening overall. The food was a tad expensive, costing us £23 for two burgers, chips and two non-alcoholic drinks, so expect to be quite out of pocket if you have a large party with you. That said the food was well prepared and tasted great with staff at the stalls getting through the customers quickly. There was also a large selection of food to choose from at 20+ stalls. Prices were pretty much consistent across the board. Getting in to the venue was easy and straight forward. They had easy access for wheelchairs and venue marshals were visible throughout the site. The only real let down of the evening was when trying to leave. It was marshalled well during the day, but at closing it became a bit of a free for all with no clear direction being given. It was nice to see this year though that they closed down one lane of the roundabout to allow traffic to flow freely out of the road once you were lucky enough to get off the site itself that is. Would recommend a visit but if possible park your car away from site and go in by foot. Pros: -wheelchair access -lots of marshals -over 20 food stalls to choose from -fun fair for the kids -lots of toilets (low waiting times) -Beer tent with a live band Cons -very expensive food -free-for-all when leaving the venue -angry customers trying to barge past other cars to get out first. Almost knocking us over when trying to push past a car. I would seriously reccomend that they leave more marshals on site and coordinate the end of the evening a lot better rather than have them playing with their phones when they are needed the most.
