Sculptures at the Castle: A Botanical Showcase

From 5th September to 3 October

A new outdoor sculpture exhibition will be in bloom at Leeds Castle this autumn. See the beautiful estate at “the loveliest Castle in the world” transformed into a stunning outdoor gallery inspired by flowers, plants and gardens. Visitors will be able to spot over 30 floral inspired sculptures, placed sympathetically within gardens and grounds of the historic Castle.

Artists from Kent and further afield, will nestle their individually made garden sculptures against trees in the Princess Alexandra Gardens, along the water’s edge as you stroll along the Lady Baillie Mediterranean Terraces and amongst the beautiful blooms in the Culpeper Gardens. The diverse display of abstract and figurative floral works will feature sculptures created using a variety of different materials from recycled plastic to industrial steel. Each artist will bring something different to this creative celebration of art and flowers.

Be sure to visit the pop-up ‘Floral Selfie Bench’ located on the Castle Island. Beautifully created using seasonal blooms, sit amongst the ‘country cottage’ style display to take a photo with the Castle as your backdrop. We’d love to see your photos so remember to tag Leeds Castle in your photos using #SculpturesatheCastle
