Don’t let the name fool you; little lords and ladies are invited to travel through time at Leeds Castle... in Kent! It’s a blend of learning and fun all rolled into one.

From Norman beginnings to Tudor times, everything is captured through artefacts, clothing, and interiors. Dog lovers can even explore the dog collar museum while kids will compete for the crown in the Squires’ Court Playground.

With 500 acres of Kentish countryside to play with, the team make the most of the seasons. In the summer expect regular events like open-air cinema and free flying falconry displays, as well as the chance to explore a yew-tree maze. In fact, in 2018 the season kicks off with the Leeds Castle Triathlon and runs right up to the magnificent 40th Anniversary of the Leeds Castle Classical Concert - both will be brilliant family fun, especially with a scrummy picnic to share.

  • All sorts of exhibitions, including the dog collar museum
  • A maze and several playgrounds
  • Don’t miss the Leeds Castle Triathlon in 2018
