LOVELI­EST CAS­TLE

Kent Life - - Town Life: Maidstone -

Fa­mously the pret­ti­est cas­tle in the world, Leeds Cas­tle is just a short drive away. Nor­man in ori­gin and cel­e­brat­ing its 900th an­niver­sary in 2019, it has been owned by many fa­mous roy­als and no­bles in its time, in­clud­ing Henry VIII, who bought it for his first wife, Cather­ine of Aragon. There’s a 500-acre es­tate to ex­plore and this month, pop­u­lar Christ­mas mar­kets, a Christ­mas grotto and a win­ter trail.
