Tudor Flower Festival at Leeds Castle (07-11/10/09)

Page 1 of 3

The normal Autumn Gold flower festival was replaced this year with a Tudor version to mark Henry VIII’s accession to the throne. Once again the visitors were asked to vote for their favourite display. I would have found it difficult to choose one display but George was adamant that his favourite was the Chapel. This is what most of the other visitors decided too. The Chapel won first prize, Lady Baillie’s Bedroom came second and the Queen’s Bathroom third. Well done to all the floral experts, who once again put on a brilliant display.

The quoted comments about the flower arrangements were taken from the official prospectus.
