the town of Maidstone
In a nutshell
Only saw Leeds Castle
The easiest way to get to Leeds Castle is by car. It is located just off the M20 motorway, exit at Junction 8. The journey from South London takes around 1 hour. Once you get near Maidstone you will start to see brown and white tourist signs which will direct you to the castle.
Alternatively, train may be the way to go for you. You can catch a SouthEastern train from London Victoria to Bearsted station, where there is a connecting bus that takes you direct to the castle. If you take this option you can buy a ticket at the start of your journey which covers your train fare, the connecting coach and admission to the castle and grounds - at a cost of £26 per adult (Mar 2007).
Another option would be to catch the National Express coach from London Victoria coach station. Coach 021 departs at 9am and arrives at the castle at 10.25am - departing the castle at 3.05pm to arrive at Victoria Coach Station at 4.50pm. The cost of a combined coach/castle ticket is £18.00 for adults (Mar 2007).
