Leeds Castle; Picnics

Picnics are welcome at Leeds Castle with plenty of choice spots available throughout the setting.  Opt for a picnic bench next to one of the adventure playgrounds, take shade under the trees close to the maze or spread out within the 500 acres of grounds.  There are no lockers available at this setting, so best to take your picnic with you.

Leeds Castle; Standard Entry

Look out for the wide range of attractions included within your standard entry ticket that offers value for money.  Standard entry includes access to 500 acres of grounds & gardens, entry to the castle, a range of adventure playgrounds to suit children of all ages, a maze, falconry displays and even a dog collar museum.  For those planning subsequent visits, (and remember tickets purchased online come with free return visits), there is plenty to amuse all the family without spending a penny more.

Leeds Castle; Special Events

Worth keeping up to date with events running at Leeds Castle throughout the year including Medieval Jousts, summertime concerts & falconry displays.  Some of these extra activities are included within your standard entrance charge, others incur additional costs and can be excluded from the free-return-visit offer.

Leeds Castle; Bolt-On Attractions

For those looking to explore Leeds Castle from a differing perspective, there are plenty of bolt-on attractions available to extend your visit. Why not enjoy a Segway Tour that takes you off the beaten track, (you can even explore the setting before it opens to the public). Try a Go Ape aerial assault course high above the ground or take to the water with the black swan ferry, the choice of yours.

Leeds Castle; Parking

Good to see that parking remains FREE of charge at Leeds Castle.  It is quite a walk from the car park to the Castle through the gardens, (approx 10/15 minutes walk).  You can opt for the miniature train instead that departs from a pick up point close to the ticket barrier although there is a charge for this, (£1.50 per adult/£1 child with under 4’s free).  Interesting to note that the miniature train takes a much quicker route to the castle than the one signposted for walkers!  There is a complimentary transport service for the less mobile.

Leeds Castle; Segway Tours

For those looking for a new perspective when exploring Leeds Castle then look out for the Segway Tours that takes you off the beaten track.  Your tour takes you on a less trodden path where you’ll quickly be rewarded with stunning views of the castle & grounds. You don’t need to purchase entrance tickets to Leeds Castle to enjoy a Segway Tour, (however once your tour is completed you will have to leave the site), so for those with only limited time available this can offer an unusual glimpse into Leeds Castle.
