Beautiful by design and first-class hostess to royalty, nobility, and glamorous guests for more than 900 years, Leeds Castle rises majestically from the water among the glorious Kentish countryside.

Home to mesmerising historical gardens and architectural landscapes, the grounds are full of dazzling beauty perfectly lending themselves to all seasons for a chic destination wedding vibe. The Princess Alexandra Gardens are massed in banks of azaleas that bring extraordinary colour, while tall bamboo brings out the ambience of the Far East in the Oriental Garden. Meanwhile, The Lady Baillie Mediterranean Garden Terraces remind visitors of sun-drenched Europe.

Leeds Castle boasts no fewer than three venues in which to celebrate your entire day. The Castle can host 100 for the ceremony and wedding breakfast, with room for 120 to 200 in Fairfax Hall. The Ceremony Room here has been recently refurbished in soft, pastel colours bringing a sense of calm and tranquillity. After the “I dos,” you'll dine in The Salon where you can enjoy breathtaking views across the moat and parklands.

The Maiden's Tower is an elegant, exclusive-use venue adjacent to the Castle with space for 80 ceremony and wedding breakfast guests, and 100 for the evening do. This 16th-century stone building, is now a glamorous self-contained venue, perfect for ceremonies, evening celebrations and overnight accommodation. Rumour has it that it was used by Catherine of Aragon's maids-of-honour during her wedding to King Henry VIII!

Built in the early 14th century as a Medieval manor, Battel Hall is a fine and rare example of local Kentish architecture of the period. Say “I do” in the beautiful Ceremony Room before moving through to the drawing room or library, both wonderfully traditional rooms for entertaining your 14 guests. In the summer months, a 100-year-old wisteria smothers the exterior, and doors from the library lead onto the extensive gardens and woodland area.

Finally, The Fairfax Barn is a further option for your reception, which can hold 100 to 200 guests, or for larger numbers a marquee with space for 200 or more can be erected among the spectacular grounds.
