Rochester Castle stands on the east bank of the River Medway in Rochester, Kent, UK. The 12th-century keep or stone tower, which is the castle's most prominent feature, is one of the best preserved in England or France.




Just outside Maidstone is Leeds Castle. In 1952 it became a Grade 1 listed building. The castle has been around since 1086.

King Edward I aquired it in the 13th century and in the 16th century, Henry VIII allowed his first wife (Catherine of Aragon) to live there. The castle today dates mostly from the 19th century and is built on islands in a lake formed by the River Len to the east of the village of Leeds. It has been open to the public since 1976 and every year it holds a Classical Concert which includes fireworks, classical music, Spitfire flybys.
