Corporate Experiences & Activities

Falconry: A falcon swooping down and landing on your gloved hand is an exceptional experience. At Leeds Castle the falconry team welcomes corporate groups to learn first-hand about birds of prey, to venture out into the parkland to fly them and bring them back to your own gauntlet.

Go Ape: Let your team loose at Go Ape forest adventure where they can climb trees, cross rope bridges and zip wire to the ground at amazing speeds. Work together in teams to overcome challenges, get to know each other better, promote interdependency and gain a real sense of achievement, whilst having fun at all levels.

Segway Castle Tour: The ultimate meeting refresher is a tour of the magnificent grounds on a Segway personal transporter. Besides being lots of fun and surprisingly easy to ride, this tour offers opportunities to enjoy views of the Castle that are rarely afforded to day visitors.

9-hole Golf Course: The Castle’s scenic 9-hole, par 33 golf course is a popular choice to entertain clients or as part of a longer conference stay. Its combination of blind tees, strategically placed bunkers and medieval moat provide challenging and rewarding holes from start to finish.

Adventure Golf: Looking for a friendly competition for your team building day out? The Leeds Castle Adventure Golf course will challenge your colleagues across 12 holes as they uncover mini versions of the Castle and attractions. So get ready to test your skills!

Archery: A fun and instructive archery event for groups large and small, where teams learn how to shoot arrows accurately and then compete in the Leeds Castle archery tournament.

Murder Mystery: Who isn’t going to be leaving Leeds Castle alive? As actors help to set the scene, immerse yourself in this truly interactive evening of dinner theatre where you decide just how involved you want to be. The emphasis is on having fun and solving the crime as a team.

The Maze & Grotto: Hire the Leeds Castle Maze for the perfect team building activity! challenge your team to find the middle and stand tall at the centre! Who will win the ultimate bragging rights for the rest of the day? Once you’ve found your way, embark on a mythical journey underground to discover twists and turns.

    Absolutely beautiful and breathtaking castle. Entrance tickets are expensive, but this place is worth every penny. The castle, gardens, the lake , the maze, and a massive playground for kids. Most of the views are scenic. There is a wonderful restaurant with a big terrace. The view of the castle is stunning.

    Amazing day out, would thoroughly recommend to anyone, especially families. The gardens are beautiful, you can feed the ducks, the audio as you're going round the castle is engaging even for kids, good restaurant, ferry, land train, maze and grotto, fantastic adventure playground, falconry, giant sandpit, kids' obstacle course, adventure golf... we all had an absolutely brilliant time! I wish we lived nearer so we could return sooner! I'd recommend going for 4-5 hours, for all ages.

    This was the first spot that we visited on our UK trip and we were just mesmerised. We had a day trip so were a little rushed because we had Canterbury cathedral and Cliffs of Dover also on the same day. The surroundings are just surreal, so much natural beauty and serenity I can not explain through words. The castle itself is not that huge but is very well maintained and beautiful. The historical significance and the surrounding natural beauty makes this a must visit place if you are visiting UK.

    We went on Father’s Day with a tour but this place is huge and spread out, therefore didn’t seem crowded. The grounds are beautiful, the castle is impressive with tons of history and lots of things to do for kids. We even did the maze and the grotto which was really fun for adults too. We had a wonderful time and would definitely come back when in the area. There is also a train which will take you to the castle area to avoid the 20 walk- we chose to just take it back.

    OK, firstly I thought the tickets were expensive at £35 for an adult. However, if you buy them online, it's £31.50 AND it's an annual ticket ( go as often as you like!) Staff are friendly and helpful. LOTS of parking (free of charge) Not just a castle, there's tons for all ages. Playgrounds, mini golf, segways, boat on lake, little train rides, sand "beach" play area, beautiful gardens, a maze, birds of prey, falconry show (2pm today, it was brilliant!), there was children's entertainment and an Easter trail today, and of course the castle. Get the audio guide (multiple language options) it's free. Cafe, restaurant, ice cream parlour... or bring a picnic to have next to the lake (it did cost £4 for a box of fries, although they were delicious and a decent size portion!) Lots of seating. Multiple toilets that were really clean. Quite a lot of walking, so wear comfy shoes! Wheelchair accessible. Would highly recommend.
