Our film begins at Hever Castle where visitors wander about the gardens. We get nice views of the house as well as the adjacent 'Tudor' village and the classical buildings and sculptures in the famous 'Italian Garden'. Leeds Castle is our next stop. Here we see the large lake that forms a moat around the house and birds and flowers in the gardens. The gardens at Groombridge Place are the next location before we end at Penshurst Place where we see roses, fountains and sculptures.
