Leeds Castle, Kent
Summer is an excellent time to drop in on Leeds Castle, whether you’re a first-time visitor or a long-time fan. Head to the castle and experience its 900-year history with a tour of the grounds or explore one of the county’s most distinguished mazes. The castle’s maze consists of 2,400 yew trees and will provide plenty of fun for the whole family.
Beyond that extravaganza, Leeds Castle offers a host of activities summer-round. The castle itself is a beautiful medieval slice of history with sprawling gardens, and kids will be kept busy on one of the castle-themed playgrounds, in the maze, or playing adventure golf in the grounds. They can also take in falconry demonstrations as on-site birds of prey take flight daily, or get active with punting or a Segway tour. There’s even a Go Ape trail in the castle’s woodland for thoroughly exhausting tree-top fun.
