Garden discovery

Leeds Castle is home to mesmerising historical gardens and architectural landscapes filled with dazzling beauty which will reward visitors with something wonderful to see in every season, the whole year round.

Discover our magnificent grounds and gardens.

Don’t miss the sun-drenched Lady Baillie Mediterranean Garden Terraces or the fragrant Culpeper Gardens on your garden discovery.

Will you visit for the day and enjoy garden tours or spend the weekend taking in nature at its finest at your own pace? Once you decide, the rest is easy.  


Seasonal gardens leave a sight to behold. Every month, sometimes every week, the gardens flourish and offer unique scents and sights which will set the tone for your garden discovery.

The Princess Alexandra Gardens is massed in banks of azaleas that bring extraordinary colour. Tall bamboo brings out the exotic feel in the Oriental Garden, and blooming magnolia will enhance and delight your senses.

A diverse array of gardens to visit

The Lady Baillie Mediterranean Garden Terraces remind us of the sun-drenched European countries, that are full of succulent and architectural plants. This garden is particularly restful, with benches to view the Great Water and acres of parkland and beyond. It is a perfect spot, warmed by the summer sun and sheltered by palms and firs.

The fragrant Culpeper Gardens is filled with beautiful blooms, hedges and herbaceous beds, bringing a sense of tranquillity, often visited by local wildlife. Be captivated by the landscape of the wider parkland, perfectly framing our exotic and glamorous Castle.

Whether you choose a day trip or weekend stay in a secluded cottage or the Stable Courtyard nestled in the heart of our gardens, Leeds Castle oozes peace and tranquillity to make your garden discovery one to boast about!

Get ready to be amazed by the stunning and fragrant florals and foliage, create memories that’ll last a lifetime.
