  113. Leeds Castle is one of my favourite places to visit with my grandchildren as there is always so many things for them to do. The day ticket offers great value as we can then return as many times as we like over the year for free.

    • Hi Sheila, I have to agree Leeds Castle works well for all the family with plenty of attractions for the children included within the ticket price. Their free returns offer that comes with all standard price day tickets do offer value for money too.

  114. How does the annual pass option work at Leeds Castle? I thought there was an extra charge for this option?

    • Hi Kevin, previously there was a £5 charge in place per person to upgrade your day ticket to Leeds Castle into an annual pass. However this year, there is NO additional charge in place as standard day tickets now include free return visits to Leeds Castle during the year, (excludes special events).

  115. hi, my family and I are members of English Heritage, would we be entitled to discount to Leeds Castle ,

    • Hi Jon, I have to say I’m not sure if you can secure a discount at Leeds Castle with English Heritage membership. I have made some inquiries & will get back to you as soon as I have further clarification.

    • Hi Jon, I have now received clarification regarding your Leeds Castle query. English Heritage members previously did receive a discount at Leeds Castle but unfortunately this is no longer the case.

  116. Gary from Ashby says:

    Hi TopDog, can I buy a 1 day ticket for Leeds Castle and then opt for the annual pass once I have visited?

    • Hi, yes you can actually purchase a day ticket to Leeds Castle, (either on the day or in advance) & then upgrade to an annual pass on the day. This means you have the opportunity to check out the attraction to see if this is somewhere you would like to return to BEFORE paying the additional £5 per person. However, you cannot take advantage of this offer on any day following your initial visit, only on the day:)

  117. James Downing says:

    If we book accommodation at Leeds Castle, does this include all the entrance charges/access to the facilities at Leeds Castle as well?

    • Hi James, yes accommodation located within Leeds Castle includes access to the attraction on the days of your visit. The great advantage here is that this also includes out of hours access to the adventure playgrounds, maze & grounds too:) You will need to pay for additional cost activities, (segways, go ape, punting, boat rides) as usual.

      • James Downing says:

        Thanks for the swift response. We’re planning on a trip to Leeds Castle in the holidays so these tips are perfect.
