Leeds Castle, confusingly near Maidstone rather than anywhere in West Yorkshire, was built in 857 and has been home to I, Henry V and Henry VIII. The Gloriette gatehouse, Tudor tower, country house and Culpeper garden are all full of atmosphere, while the banqueting hall regularly hosts black-tie dinners.
