CALLING ALL ADVENTURE SEEKERS

Leeds Castle in Maidstone has been described as ‘the loveliest castle in the world’. Home to six queens and Henry VIII himself, the castle is now 900-years-old and offers 500-acres of beautiful parkland and gardens for you and the family to explore.

Should you wish to enter the grounds of Leeds Castle, customers are required to reserve a time slot for entry, further details can be found at https://www.leeds-castle.com/visit+reservations.

Children are spoiled for choice with Adventure Golf, Knights’ Stronghold Playground, and the Squires’ Court Playground.

Head over to the Bird of Prey Centre for some free Hawk, Vulture, Falcon and Owl flying displays which take place in the Falconry Arena in front of the Maze.

Want to give your feet a rest? Take a leisurely punt on the moat, sit back and enjoy a ride on Elsie the Castle Train or catch the Black Swan Ferry Boat across the Great Water from the castle and drive to the maze and play areas.

There are lots of exciting events which go on throughout the year such as Motors by the Moat, a Medieval Jousting Tournament, open-air cinema and evening bat walks.
