Discovering Castles in Kent, Leeds Castle!

My love for castles certainly started back to when I was still a child; so every trip I plan, I always have the habit of looking at whether there are castles in the area, especially of the medieval age.

In this case, however, the travel program was exclusively aimed at visiting one of the most characteristic castles of the Kent region in the United Kingdom: Leeds Castle…

It takes just over an hour from West London to reach this beautiful castle surrounded by beautiful gardens, less than an hour from the east of the city.

Once you arrive you can leave your car in the large parking area and walk to the entrance of the castle. The entrance ticket is quite expensive, ¬£ 27 seemed slightly excessive, without diminishing the beauty of this place. Once you exit the ticket office, you have immediate access to the beautiful castle gardens…

You can choose to take a pleasant walk, especially on a sunny day, through the hugh park, or use the “shuttle little train” that will accompany you to the main entrance of the castle. We definitely recommend the walk…

Anyway, whatever your choice is, the one in the next photo will be your point of arrival… or perhaps better to say of departure, to discover the interior of the building…

Once you have crossed the main door, you will find yourself in the internal garden of the building…

From here you can follow the indicated path that will take you to the castle from the cellars, located in the foundations of the castle…

Once inside, you will simply have to follow the indicated path that will lead you to discover, room after room, all the history that this palace contains…

Once you have finished the tour inside the palace, you will find yourself back in the internal garden of the castle, where you can have the opportunity to take more photos or go to the souvenir shop to bring a souvenir of this visit with you. And if like us, you want to take advantage of the hot sunny day to take a walk in the large and colorful gardens, feel free to do it and to spend all the time you want here…

Our journey will now continue to nearby Bodian Castle…
