supporting Leeds castle with Conservation projects, Volunteering & More

For more than half a million visitors each year, Leeds Castle and its estate is considered a national treasure, providing a window into over 900 years of history, a haven of tranquillity and a world of discovery and enjoyment, made possible through our conservation projects.

The Leeds Castle Foundation

The aim of the Leeds Castle Foundation is ‘the preservation of the Castle, its collections and interiors, and its estate for the benefit of the public’ through it’s conservation projects. To achieve this aim, there is an on-going programme of maintenance and restoration of this magnificent 12th Century Castle requiring expertise, care and money.

All profits go towards this aim, the Charitable Foundation receives no external funding to further this good work.

Every visitor a supporter, every supporter valued

Therefore we are extremely grateful to each and every visitor who contributes by purchasing a ticket or staying here in one of the delightful cottages or other overnight accommodation.

Conservation projects

Amongst many of the important projects carried out over the past five years, money raised with your help has gone towards conserving and re-pointing the oldest parts of the Castle’s outer stonework, improving accessibility for all, and providing educational visits for over 50,000 children a year. Supporting Leeds Castle helps us carry out these conservation projects and so much more.


As an independent charity, we rely on you, our visitors, guests and supporters to help us preserve this special place.
