What can I expect on the day

Sightseeing with a difference when you Segway at Leeds Castle in Kent! And no, it's not just any part of the Garden of England you'll be exploring on these two-wheeled personal transporters, you'll be Segway touring around the grounds of one of the county's biggest tourist attractions - the magical Leeds Castle.

The Segway base here at the fabulous Leeds Castle is located just behind the main ticket office and shop. Worth noting is the fact that you won't need to buy an entrance ticket to the castle to be able to ride your Segway. The team here at Leeds Castle has been organising and hosting their scenic and adventurous Segway tours since 2008, so you'd have to agree they certainly know their way around, so expect a bit of discovery tour!

With over 500 acres of lush park lands surrounding this ridiculously romantic Leeds castle, a Segway is the ideal way to get around. Of course, expert riders are on hand to show you how to control the thing, which, despite looking tricky, is pretty easy to master. Once in control of your Segway, you will delight in heading off up and down the grassy banks and knolls of Leeds Castle.

Using the X2 cross country-equipped Segway, you'll be heading off the public paths of Leeds Castle on these rugged machines to tour the castle on a route which isn't normally open to the public, giving you a very privileged view point from which to see 'the loveliest castle in the world'. As you glide along, your Segway guide will point out the main sights, from the famous Leeds Castle moat and Maiden's Tower, to Lady Baillie's garden and the aviary.

You will be on your Segway at Leeds Castle for the best part of an hour, giving you plenty of time to have fun riding one of these ingenious gadgets. More than just a 'gave go Segway session' these tours of Leeds Castle on an electric-powered Segway giving you a very different perspective of this iconic castle near Maidstone. We think you'll like it! See our main Segway section for more exciting Segway activities around the UK.

Had a fantastic segway tour round Leeds Castle. My only complaint was that there were 14 people in our group, so there seemed a lot of hanging around. This was actually 2 groups together, the 1/2 hour tour and the hour tour. This meant 14 of us were learning how to use the segways at the same time, and during the first 1/2 hour of the tour, all 14 of us were together - at one point we could race individually as fast as we could on a flat bit one by one, but if you were the first one to go, you had to hang round until the other 13 people came in. It would be better to have done the 2 tours separately. However, we got our full hour on the segway, so were not cheated out of time, and this did not really detract from the brilliant experience, and the great guides. Took one star off though....
