Leeds Castle is well worth a visit, though the ticket price of £21 is quite steep, especially if you live too far away to make use of the "use again" included in the price. The Castle grounds are well designed, plenty of space for small children and a nice play area well away from the Castle itself. There are several places to buy food in the stable courtyard, not cheap but reasonable quality. There are two gift shops,also not cheap. I enjoyed the inside of the moated Castle very much. Although there has been much reconstruction over the centuries, it still maintains an atmosphere which would be impossible to replicate if it wasn't there already. The dining room, designed by Henry VIII, is especially evocative. The tour of the Castle is well sign-posted and takes a good hour to complete. Views from the windows over the golf course and lakes are breathtaking. The Castle is now used for weddings and it was lovely to see the arrival of a bride and groom in the afternoon sunshine. Altogether, a very good day out, a place which can honestly say it has tried and succeeded in offering something for everyone.
