Take a day trip out of London and go visit Leeds Castle (and you don’t need to go to Leeds to get there).

The castle is actually in south-east England, in Maidstone Kent and is relatively easy to get to. Although you will have to time it with the coaches that will get you there and back again.

It is very easy to spend a day here walking through the grounds or taking in bird shows

If you’re here during a medieval showcase you may see some jousting!

You can also do a host of other activities like falconry and segwway tours (sadly not together) or maybe just sit around and have a picnic.

Much of the castle was modernised during the 1920s so you’ll get a taste of the glamour of that period but you’ll also have opportunities to see other areas which highlight the 1000 year history of the castle.

There’s also a maze!

It really is a lovely estate and one I’d suggest you try and get to.
