Posted by admin on May 8, 2009

Take the family to historic Leeds Castle and celebrate the 500th Anniversary of Henry VIII’s accession to the throne. From Tuesday May 26 to Sunday May 31, Henry VIII’s Royal Jousting Tournament recreates the pageantry of Tudor England against the stunning backdrop of the 900-year-old castle near Maidstone, Kent.

Experience the thrill of twice daily jousts with knights on horseback and men at arms. Staged by Europe’s premier jousting company, the Knights of Royal England, the non-stop action features galloping horses, daredevil stunts, falls and fights in an authentic jousting arena complete with a royal box on the Cedar Lawn.
