Leeds Castle's 900th Anniversary
Leeds Castle welcomes you to a year of special events to celebrate its 900th anniversary.
The Castle has been lived in throughout nine centuries, owned by six medieval queens, King Henry VIII and latterly in 1926 by Olive, Lady Baillie who organised splendid weekend parties for stars of the silver screen, top politicians and royalty of the day.
Special celebrations and a fun-packed events programme will mark this historic milestone and highlight the work of the Leeds Castle Foundation in preserving the Castle and grounds for the next 900 years.
