About Leeds Castle

Leeds Castle, complete with its own moat, stands surrounded by 500 acres of Kent’s luscious parklands and gardens. Such a lavish and grand venue is an idyllic, romantic location for weddings or civil ceremonies in any season.

Our dedicated wedding co-ordinators are on hand from your very first enquiry right through to the big day, using their experience to provide an outstanding service, ensuring that your day is perfect. We aim to exceed your expectations with fantastic service and finishing touches. Our Wedding Team and on-site caters are keen to meet with you to discuss your requirements.

With a rich history of 900 years, Leeds Castle has been property and rendezvous of kings and queens, lords and ladies. Now earning the reputation of “the loveliest castle in the world”, we offer a number of wedding packages to truly make the most of this historic venue.

Your special day doesn't need to end with the last dance of the evening. With convenient en-suite rooms, elegantly decorated with charm and modern design, you can then enjoy all that the Estate has to offer the following morning after a delicious breakfast.

    A perfect wedding in a wonderful setting!

    It's easy to say "perfect", but it certainly was for us. Right from the outset, even during COVID uncertainty, the planning team were so good and really held your hands through the process, making suggestions when prompted and offering advice on what would work best - took a lot of stress away from the situation. For the day itself, the setting is beautiful, of course, but it is as nice inside as it is outside and the Maiden's Tower has the benefit of the lovely private walled garden too. The staff are incredible - I cannot reiterate this enough and it really is an important factor, especially on the day. The accommodation is wonderful - particularly the upstairs rooms in the Maiden's Tower, but even our guests who stayed overnight in the Stable Courtyard B&B said how great that was too (and we all got to have a lovely breakfast together the following morning in the Castle View Restaurant). The food is great - even a friend of ours who is an award-winning professional chef was saying how good it was. And we pushed right to the Maiden's Tower limit of 67 for the sit-down meal! Couldn't fault a single thing and I thought it was well-priced, given the exclusivity of the venue.

    Outstanding wedding venue

    From booking to the day itself, the Leeds Castle Team have been amazing. Our wedding day was flawless and we could not have wished for a better day. The Maiden’s Tower is simply stunning!

    The Perfect Wedding

    As soon as we fell in love with the venue and met with the team at Leeds Castle, we knew that it was going to be an amazing day (thankfully the weather “played ball” too!).

    Our coordinator, Sophie, was the most helpful, professional and understanding person we could have asked for. Obviously, a lot naturally changes through the organization of a wedding and Sophie’s openness and adaptability to our requests were second to none.
    We had free exclusive package with the Fairfax Hall as a bolt-on for the evening. This gives the evening an extra dimension for the evening reception with an amazing view of the castle lit up at night.

    The staff on the day were professional, organized and interacted well with guests when appropriate. The end product was a day that we will never forget and one we will always treasure.
    Thank you to everyone at Leeds Castle for making the start of our married life the best it could be.
