Of Norman origin, Leeds Castle was built on two islands in the middle of a lake. A stone bridge links the keep and the turreted main building. This monument containing many splendid works of art was used during Camp David peace negotiations on the Middle East in 1977, and the Anglo-Irish negotiations in 2004. The park includes a duckery, a secret grotto and a maze.
