Leeds Castle
A royal residence for many ages, Leeds Castle is one of the most beautiful castles in Southern England located near London in the county of Kent. The castle was built by the Saxon Monarchs in the first century A.D. and was taken by the Norman Barons who reinforced the castle as a stronghold after they had conquered England. The castle is also connected with three medieval queens who were granted it as a dowry: Eleanor of Castille (13th century) who had great influence on the architecture of parts of the castle, Joan of Navarre (15th century) who was imprisoned at Leeds for witchcraft and Catherine de Valois who began the line of the Tudors.
Warwick Castle
One of the finest castles in Britain, Warwick Castle is located in the town of Warwick situated on a rocky hill on the north side of the Avon River. The exterior of the castle is an example of 14th century fortification, while the interior is a magnificent 17-18th century mansion. Highlights of the castle include the Armoury passage, which contains a fine collection of armour, and a greenhouse in the gardens which contains the 5.5-foot high Warwick Vase. Also within the castle is found a unique collection of painting, sculpture, furniture, china and curiosities as well as a clock belonging to Marie Antoinette.
