It is actually the name of a famous castle in Kent, near Maidstone.

First built as a Norman stronghold, it is now one of the most visited historic buildings in Britain. Henry VIII, with his first wife Catherine of Aragon, turned it into a magnificent royal palace.

We are lucky, we got to go to the castle every time we visited Leeds Castle.

However, even if you are local and you have been to the castle before, I do recommend another visit.

She had such good taste and it was so beautiful to see all the rooms decorated as in the 20s or 30s.

    Wow! You have definitely sold me on this. I love how you get access to Leeds Castle before it’s open to the public. That must have been so nice. I’ve never been glamping so I have no idea how dirty accommodation can be but I do get attracted to holidays that are well maintained and clean. Looks like a stunning a place.
