We always come passed this castle on the way going to my parents-in-law's place, but we never thought of going into this place until the Kent Police hosted the National Police Dog Trials on the 22nd-26th of this month, which we did go last Friday with Alfie and my in-laws. We spent the whole afternoon there and we really had a good fun especially we had Alfie - the little man!Leeds Castle in Kent, England, has been called the "loveliest castle in the world". Listed in the Domesday Book, this castle has been a Norman stronghold, a royal residence and a royal palace. It's situation is stunning, set on two islands in a magnificent lake. The Royal Manor was originally built in 857AD and owned by the Saxon royal family. After the Norman Conquest, work began on building the first stone castle on the site.
