Tuesday 23rd July


The route sets off across country through the Kent Downs National Landscape before arriving at Leeds Castle just before the end of the day’s run, Maidstone.

Leeds Castle has been a Norman stronghold; the private property of six of England’s medieval queens; a palace used by Henry VIII and his first wife Catherine of Aragon; a Jacobean country house; a Georgian mansion; an elegant early 20th century retreat for the influential and famous; and in the 21st century, it has become one of the most visited historic buildings in Britain.

Not only that, but it has what is considered the only museum of dog collars in the world!
