Leeds Castle is the ideal venue for hospitality during the 149th Open at Royal St George's, Kent


Leeds Castle is the perfect backdrop to hosting your Open event.

The Castle has played host to numerous celebrations over many centuries of history. A Royal Court during the middle ages, it has been the venue for hospitality for Kings, including Henry V and Henry VIII, Governments, Hollywood legends in the 1920s and 30s and more recently for stars such as Luciano Pavarotti, Sir Elton John and Sir Cliff Richard.

Transform this memorable occasion into something unforgettable by hosting your Golf Open celebrations at Leeds Castle in the wonderful Garden of England in Kent. With overnight accommodation options for every venue the Castle offers a unique opportunity to make the most of your party, enabling everyone to enjoy “the loveliest castle in the world”.

Take over the entire Castle, its gardens and grounds!

 Welcome to the "Loveliest Castle in the World". 

Discover the ultimate base for corporate groups, private delegations or for entertaining guests. Make the Castle your residential base for the entire tournament. There’s plenty of scope for daytime and evening entertainment and for stamping your own corporate mark on the location, with a dedicated private entrance, concierge and butler service, and food service from fine dining to picnics and barbeques in the grounds. We can also build exclusive itineraries around Kent and beyond.  

Your guests will have the unparalleled experience of staying in a former Royal palace with all the luxury of a 1920's country house interior, fine dining and modern amenities ranging from a 9 hole golf course and helicopter landing, to falconry, Go-Ape and Segway tours. 

Our transport partners can arrange your travel, whether by land or by helicopter transfer, making Leeds Castle less than 55 minutes from St Georges and the Open. We’re an hour from London by train or road; less than that from Gatwick Airport or the Channel Ports. 

Your VIP's will soon understand why we’re called the "loveliest castle in the world".
