Leeds Castle, four miles south east of Maidstone, Kent, England, dates back to 1119, though a manor house stood on the same site from the ninth century. The castle and grounds lie to the east of the village of Leeds, Kent. This castle and its grounds are now an important leisure destination in the county of Kent. The castle grounds has an aviary, a maze, a grotto, a golf course and what may be the world’s only museum of dog collars. It also plays host to an annual hot air balloon display. Canterbury is a city located in eastern Kent in the South East region of England. In Latin the city was called Durovernum Cantiacorum; it lay at the junction of three roads from their ports of Regulbium (Reculver), Dubris (Dover) and Lemanis (Lympne); and it stood on what has become known as Watling Street. The city walls and one of the city gates remain. The city is the seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Primate of All England, head of the Church of England and of the worldwide Anglican Communion. Thomas Beckett was murdered in Canterbury Cathedral; King Henry IV was buried along with the Edward the Black Prince. Furthermore, Geoffery Chaucer wrote the Canterbury Tales about the pilgrims and the people. This literary heritage was continued with Christopher Marlowe who was born here.
