‘Grow’ Outdoors at Leeds Castle, Kent

Get your magnifying glasses and green fingers ready for some fun-filled outdoor garden-themed activities at Leeds Castle in celebration of National Garden Wildlife Week.
Even the youngest visitors can explore, investigate and learn how to plant and grow seeds at Leeds Castle’s Garden Wildlife Week event. Join the ‘Bug Safari’ and discover all types of bugs and insects on the grounds of the Castle estate.
A ‘Wildlife Trail’ will take families on a fun adventure through the grounds, following clues to find animal illustrations and hidden answers to complete a trail card. The excitement continues in the ‘Sunflower Marquee’ near the Maze, where younger visitors are invited to plant their sunflower seeds to take home and watch grow.
Once you’ve completed the activity sheets and planted your very own sunflower, visit the fantastic array of daily attractions all open once again this half term. From the 17th
May, for the first time in over six months, the doors to the magnificent Castle rooms will once again open to allow visitors to explore over 900-years of history.
Families can also enjoy taking a relaxing cruise across the Great Water on the Black Swan Ferry, watching the incredible free-flying Bird of Prey display, getting lost in the Maze and exploring the fantastic children’s playgrounds. And there’s an opportunity for a parent-child challenge on Adventure Golf. 
If you don’t fancy taking a picnic then there’s a choice of catering kiosks packed with locally made ice cream and delicious takeaway lunches and refreshments to fill those hungry tummies. 
Visit to pre-book your tickets and check current opening times, Covid health and safety restrictions, and prices. 
Leeds Castle is located near Maidstone in Kent just off Junction 8 of the M20 and only one hour’s drive from London.
