From a castle with 900 years of history to the rustic beauty of a Kentish Tudor timber framed barn or the grandeur of a large country manor house with staff. What will you choose as the backdrop to your next private party?
The magnificent rooms within the Castle provide a memorable setting for celebrations with family and friends.
Once you are through the front door the Castle becomes yours for the night. Guests can enjoy pre-dinner drinks in the castle library followed by a game of croquet on the lawn. They can curl up on the sofas in front of the open log fires, play the piano or have a game of backgammon in the drawing rooms. Leeds Castle offers a host of finishing touches including musical entertainment and stunning floral arrangements prepared by the castle’s florist. And of course, the castle butler and his team are on hand to ensure everything runs smoothly.
Dinner can be served in the Castle dining room, with its delicate Chinese porcelain and Aubusson tapestries, while larger groups can feast in The Salon, with its magnificent fireplace and sweeping views across the castle moat.
With its delicate Chinese porcelain and Aubusson tapestries the Castle dining room offers a bright and spacious area seating up to 80 theatre style, or 30 around the table. Alternatively, the Boardroom, ideal for smaller meetings, seats up to 16.
After the business of the day, guests can relax in the drawing rooms, or wander through the Castle at leisure.
The Fairfax Hall is an immaculately restored Kentish timber-framed barn that dates from 1680.
With sweeping views from its terrace across the moat to the castle, there are few better locations in Kent than The Fairfax Hall for a fun filled party night.
The adjoining Terrace Room can be used for dancing, with doors that lead out on to the terrace where guests can mingle on a summer’s evening as they view the floodlit Castle.
Our hospitality team will be glad to recommend bands and discos to create the perfect ambience for your celebration. The Fairfax Hall is available in the evenings from 7pm.
The adjoining Stable Courtyard Bedrooms can be reserved for overnight accommodation, or for those wishing to stay longer, you can book a holiday cottage on the estate.
