Darling Daffodils

Peaceful moments spent in awe of cheerful daffodils fluttering in the breeze, and acres of grounds amassed in glorious golden yellow, signals the start of spring.

As the spring sunshine starts to make its appearance, why not head to Leeds Castle for a self-led stroll around the beautiful gardens and parkland.

The daffodils will be sure to dazzle the eye with blankets and clusters of vibrant colour to be discovered, which will no doubt add a cheery spring to your step.
