Today we visited Leeds Castle in Kent. It’s billed as “The Loveliest Castle in the World”. Well, it’s not bad, and certainly looks good from over the moat, but I must admit to being fairly unimpressed with its overall size and inside was, frankly, a bit dull. The gardens/park were very nice, and probably the best part of the visit for us. I also think many of the Bavarian castles may have something to say about that claim 😉 All that said, the promotional activities employed were certainly working as the place was heaving with people.
Outside the weather was patchy but I knew it should provide some drama in the sky…so here’s a picture, without the dramatic storm clouds and with no sign of the moat or gardens, of the main entrance to the castle and the castle itself. More images will no doubt follow.
