About Leeds Castle


Leeds Castle is a beautifully maintained historic site nestled within the sprawling Kentish countryside in Maidstone. Here it has stood for 900 years, brimming with fascinating architectural features and having played host to a wealth of celebrations over the centuries.

While Leeds Castle is stunning at any time of year, at Christmas this ancient building really comes alive. As well as its unique atmosphere and position, the team give their all to creating magical Christmastime events, year after year, and they've already started on 2023!

If you're in charge of planning this year's Christmas party, whether it be for family, friends or colleagues, Leeds Castle has a host of excitement in store. Held on multiple dates throughout December, guests are invited to book its carefully-curated Christmas package for their party which includes a glass of fizz on arrival, a three-course Christmas dinner with all the trimmings, as well as live DJ entertainment and dancing. 

Anyone is welcome to come, so instead of going through the admin of booking a venue, finding the decorations, ordering catering and planning a playlist for your team - why not simply sign them up to Leeds Castle's Christmas event? This way, all the hard work is done for you and it will feel like a proper party.

All Christmas events are hosted in the rustic Fairfax Barn, a gorgeous space dating back to the 17th-century. This impressive structure boasts an authentic timber frame which will be decked out in festive decor and lots of sparkle come the Christmas season. 

All the added extras are taken care of too, from Christmas crackers to party streamers, and while dancing ends at midnight, the castle boasts a wealth of beautiful period rooms so you can stay the night if you fancy.

Testimonials For Leeds Castle

Amazing VenueFEBRUARY, 2024

We had such an amazing wedding day, all staff on the day were brilliant and our wedding coordinator was so helpful. Katie (our coordinator) helped with absolutely any questions we had in the years, months and days leading up to the big day, and we knew the day would go so smoothly. The manager on the day, Dave, could not have done more for us if he tried. Everything went smoothly and a real credit to the team. Also special thanks to Josh who drove us round in the buggy for the weekend, amazing team.
