The Maiden’s Tower, meanwhile, is a versatile space that can be used for product launches, formal meetings, conferences and presentations, while also boasting its own garden and on-site accommodation. Inside, the Tudor Dining Hall and Long Gallery are its two main spaces and can be hired for up to 80 for dinner or 100 for a drinks receptions. Day delegate, 24-hour delegate and summer BBQ packages are available in conjunction with The Maiden’s Tower. 

For the perfect party or celebration, take a look at The Fairfax Hall, an immaculately restored Kentish timber-framed barn with an outdoor terrace, stunning views and the capacity to host live bands and discos. With a maximum capacity of 180 guests, it’s a great option for wedding parties, although do note it’s only available in the evenings from 7pm.

Testimonials For Leeds Castle

BPP Professional Education and University CoursesMAY, 2022

"BPP would highly recommend Leeds Castle as a corporate venue to entertain your business colleagues. It is such a grand, picturesque and stunning venue befitting for a lavish dinner and residential stay in an English castle! We found the staff approachable, professional and friendly which took any stress out of organising our dinner in November 2013. Each encounter with every member of staff was excellent and made us feel very welcome. From our initial enquiry, we received prompt responses and clear information covering off all possibilities. Every detail was taken care of for us on the day of our event and the excellent communication and attention to detail is something for the Castle to be proud of. The menus offered us a wide range of choices and the wine and food was beautifully presented. The catering team were extremely helpful in catering for the special dietary requirements in our party. We had to make some last minute changes on the evening but the staff took it all in their stride and it was no problem at all for them. Staying in the Castle’s state bedrooms was a wonderful end to our event. Thanks once again!"

"Following a very successful business year, we wanted somewhere special to host our annual Directors Meeting and celebrate – Leeds Castle certainly delivered! Our party were treated like royalty – with exemplary service provided by all the staff who work there. The setting was magnificent and being able to stay overnight and enjoy a private tour of the castle felt like a huge privilege. After our meeting, we enjoyed a number of sporting activities, including archery, clay pigeon shooting, drumming and duck herding – which were all tremendous fun! The dining experience in Henry VIII’s banqueting suite in the evening was both delicious and delightful. The only downside – a rude awakening by some very noisy geese! In all seriousness, it was a very special two-day event, which will be remembered by Research Partnership’s management team for many years to come."

"Thank you so much for the way in which you and your team made Quo Vadis Conference so special this year. Your team and everyone involved in Leeds Castle are absolutely amazing; the planning this year was so easy for us simply because of the professionalism of your staff.  We were wondering, do you send all of your staff on a customer care course? Because, even the security guards in their little huts were so courteous and friendly. We cannot thank you enough for making Quo Vadis so memorable for us and for everyone who attended."

"When we booked Leeds Castle as a venue for our Sales & Marketing conference we knew it would be special. We were looking for something different which would energise and stimulate our delegates. We were certainly not disappointed! The setting was magnificent and the food and organization was excellent. Last minute changes, including a doubling of the delegates, was dealt with in a professional and accommodating manner. All staff were efficient, courteous and very approachable. By the end of the conference, I felt I had made some new friends. This was a truly unique, wonderful and unforgettable experience. Nice job Leeds Castle!"

"I wanted to write to you to thank you for your help in pulling together our 'More than a Million' event this week, and the impeccable service we and our guests received throughout our stay.  Your team were fantastic, I'd particularly like to mention Liam the Butler, who took over every part of our evening arrangements and reassured me that he had everything under control. Everyone showed great flexibility with our changing rooming lists up to the event, and extra requests whilst there such as early breakfast for some guests, which was much appreciated and made our job so much easier. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the tours of the castle, conducted by wonderful tour guides with such enthusiasm and knowledge.  Our guests, especially those from Continental Europe, were really 'wowed' by the classical English venue - it was the ideal setting for our VIP event.  Hopefully we will have occasion to work with you again soon."

Jill Tracey, Business Development & Sales Support
