PA SHOW SPOTLIGHT: Leeds Castle in Kent

  • 0

Just one hour’s drive from London, “the loveliest castle in the world” is an ideal location for conferences, teambuilding activities and retreats.

Set in the Kent countryside within 500 acres of parkland, Leeds Castle has been a Norman stronghold; the private property of six of England’s medieval queens; a palace used by Henry VIII and his first wife Catherine of Aragon; an elegant early 20th century retreat for the influential and famous; and in the 21st century, it is one of the most visited historic buildings in Britain. 

Today, this unique venue has all the modern amenities needed for high-scale meetings, fine-dining and events; all within an impressive setting. Your first glimpse of the Castle is enough to take your breath away – set on two islands, the Castle rises from a majestic moat, and its grounds and 9-hole golf course make for perfect team building activities, including unforgettable free-flying falconry experiences. 

Guests can book the entire Castle Island, with flexible use of the Maiden’s Tower, Castle State rooms, drawing rooms, boardroom, dining room, banqueting hall and luxury four-poster bedrooms. For more intimate retreats, the Castle has also recently restored and opened a 14th century manor house on the edge of the estate. This property, named Battel Hall, offers equally beautiful break-out rooms, an oak-panelled dining room, individually designed bedrooms and lush private gardens for summer soirees. 

Leeds Castle will be exhibiting at The PA Show on the 25th and 26th February – come and chat to our team, learn more about what we can offer and share your details with us in order to be added to our database to receive a complimentary day ticket, so you can explore the spectacular Leeds Castle for yourself.
