Leeds Castle

Jacob missed his trip to Leeds Castle in Kent with his class due to being sick. He was very upset about this so we decided to go for a night and visit the castle the next day. Mum, Katharine, Matthew and Amy wanted to join us so we all met at a Premier Inn in Maidstone. The hotel was fine but the town itself was a little rough. We had a good meal out at a buffet place that served a whole variety of food so good for the varied palettes in our party!
So we had the day at Leeds Castle on the Sunday. It was a beautiful day, sunny but a little chilly. Allen went off to do work on his masters, plus a bit of shopping! Jacob was studying castles and also had to do a project on them so we took lots of photos. There was a maze to go through, the actual castle to visit, a play ground and huge gardens to explore.
It was a good place to visit so I'm glad we made the effort to take him and it was great to see the family too.
