Leeds Castle is steeped in rich history, in the 11th and 12th centuries it was a Norman stronghold, from the 13th to 15th century it was the private property of six of England’s medieval queens. During the 16th century, it was used as a palace by Henry VIII and his first wife Catherine of Aragon. In the 17th century it was a Jacobean country house that relied solely on the fortunes of the owners, in the 18th century it was turned into a Georgian mansion, and in the 19th century, it was transformed into 'The New Castle' in an amazing feat of determination by Fiennes Wykeham Martin which saw ruined and dilapidated areas of the old castle updated and reformed into the castle we see today. By the early 20th century it was an elegant retreat for the influential and famous, and in the 21st century, it has become one of the most visited historic buildings in Britain.
