Leeds Castle Festival of Flowers brings floral designers and birthday blooms

The last private owner of Leeds Castle near Maidstone, Lady Olive Baillie, was known for her love of elaborate floral displays at her lavish house parties and she held the castle's first flower festival back in 1901.

Today the tradition is continued with floral creations by the team adorning the castle's rooms for visitors to the house which she left to the people of Kent.
