Long Description:
Tour Leeds Castle by Segway!

Leeds castle dies A LOT of tours with tour companies. They offer bus tours, personal tours, van tours, bike tours, and Segway tours!

We found Leeds Castle staff rolling out the Segways in preparation for a tour on the day we were there. Tours start from the gift shop.

From the Segway Tours UK website: (visit link)


The Scenic Tour is ideal for those just wanting to experience the Segway for the first time.

We start with an introduction to the Segway, which is then followed by one to one training. Once all members of the tour party are confident we depart on the 30-35 minute tour. The majority of the tour takes place in the grounds outside of the main castle gardens, and affords views of the castle rarely seen by visitors who choose to explore on foot.

Restrictions – Please note that we do not operate a Rally/Race experience. If you wish to be competitive or ride aggressively we recommend you do not book a tour with us as you will be disappointed.
