Festival of flowers

Summer ain't over yet! Make the most of it with this awesome display of nature at its best (with a little help from the gardening team) at the magical Leeds Castle

Been intending to visit Leeds Castle but not yet got round to it? Then now’s your perfect chance because this September you can see incredible floral displays inside the Castle, themed this year to ‘Ladies Day’, taking inspiration from high fashion, high society and high-stakes horseracing (right up our street, see?)

Be inspired by the creativity of international award-winning floral designers and enjoy a programme of specialist talks and demonstrations at this year’s Festival of Flowers (15 – 20 Sept). Leeds Castle has developed something of a reputation for its flower displays having played host to the Chelsea Fringe (an off-shoot of the Chelsea Flower Show in the shires).

Among the highlights is a guest talk on Saturday 15 September by English garden designer and television personality Joe Swift, taking place in the Festival Marquee. There will also be the opportunity to buy beautiful flowers and garden accessories from a variety of stalls on the Pavilion Lawn. Make an evening of it by booking a table at Castle View Restaurant and enjoy a special Festival of Flowers menu.
