ENGLAND (LEEDS CASTLE)
This castle provides the setting more than half of my debut novel, Maylie and the Maze. I visited it once a long time ago, and it made quite an impression on me, especially the maze!
The first stone castle was built in 1119. The land surrounding the castle and its moat includes 500 acres of gardens, parkland, and wildlife.
There are also a host of activities and attractions including falconry demonstrations, a dog collar museum, zipline and Segway tours, playgrounds, miniature golf and more.
