Leeds Castle, set in 500 acres of parkland and gardens is designed to be at its best in spring. The Wood Garden is continually developed to build colour throughout the seasons. It has also become a sanctuary for wildlife and waterfowl, among them the famous black swans. The Pavilion Garden, which used to contain two tennis courts, is planted with rhododendrons and azaleas. Transformed in 1980 by Russell Page, the Culpeper Garden has traditional box-edged beds filled with roses and colourful perennials, a quintessential English country cottage garden. The Lady Baillie Garden is rich with Mediterranean and sub-tropical plants, providing flowers throughout the year.
Use your Key to the Castle (valid for one year) to come and visit the gardens throughout the year in the changing seasons.
