If the stone walls of Leeds Castle could speak, they would tell rich and fascinating tales of the notable families who inhabited this regal residence. Built nearly nine hundred years ago in a valley of the River Len, near Kent, England, the restored castle is a trove of antiques, art, and history. It was home to six queens, a palace of Henry VIII, and a retreat for the glamorous and powerful.
