Leeds Castle in UK
Located in Kent in England, this castle now serves as accommodation for those who wish and are able to spend a night here as well. The British call this castle as "the most beautiful in the world" and with good reason. Built in 857, the castle was home to several representatives of royal families including Edwuard I, Henry V and Henry VIII.
Inside, visitors can admire centuries old paintings, tapestries and furniture art. Outside, the gardens which are covered by fog in the morning to noon, open to natural real shows, including exhibits and being a vineyard and a golf course. Positioned among the gardens opening to the lake, there is a huge cage that houses a large variety of birds. But perhaps the most impressive and charming tradition remains today is the dinner held at Leeds Castle in Henry VIII banquet hall, all the requirements of British elegance, a real show off in times long past and an experience worthy of a true king.
