UK: Kent: Leeds Castle
Leeds Castle in Maidstone, Kent
By TTM on 30 July 2008 in Destination Guides
It nestles in a 500 acre park that offers an amazing array of attractions. Black swans glide on the moat and waterways, peacocks wander through the grounds and birds of prey soar on the wind during daily falconry displays.
The superbly and imaginatively designed gardens are in colour all year round and nearby are the aviaries that offer insights into modern conservation and capitve breeding.
Also on the grounds is a vineyard, greenhouses, duckery and charming woodland walks and a confounding maze.
On site there is a licensed restaurant, shops and free parking. Inside, superb furnishings make exploring the castle all the more enjoyable.
The castle organises hot air balloon rides. Flying shortly after sunrise or before sunset, a flight over the stunning Kent countryside is an exhilarating yet tranquil experience that will be remembered long after the flight is over. A flight in the Leeds Castle Balloon makes an unusual, exciting and surprising gift for those special occasions.
