ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Kent Segway Experience

See it on a Segway! Take this wonderful tour of Leeds Castle in Kent, just an hour from London, and experience the romantic grounds in a very unique - and very fun - way!

This Segway Experience will have you gliding around the gorgeous grounds of Leeds Castle in Kent. No only will you enjoy the stunning surroundings and beautiful views of the romantic castle, but you will enjoy them while mastering the amazing technology of the fascinating and futuristic Segway!

The experience bagins with an introduction to the Segway, which is then followed by some one-to-one Segway training. When every member of the group is confident with Segway steering, you'll depart on the 60 minute tour. Most of the tour takes place in the grounds just outside of the main castle gardens. There will be a number of lovely views of the castle, one of which is particularly pretty and a great photo opportunity - you will be at the summit of a hill, looking down onto the front of the castle set in amongst the trees with the Pilgrim's Way as it’s backdrop.

The Kent Segway Experience makes a fantastic gift for locals and tourists alike, guaranteed to be an unforgettable day spent in beautiful surroundings!

A Castle entry ticket is not required to take the Segway Tour, however you will require a ticket to visit the Castle and grounds separately.

Group Size & Spectators

Participants: The Kent Segway Experience is for 1 participant.

Max Group Size: 8

Spectators Allowed on Site: No

Spectators can certainly watch (and laugh) as family or friends get familiar with the Segway, however once the tour starts, spectators will not be able to keep up - the Segways are quite nippy when they get going! A castle entry ticket could be purchased, which is valid for a year, meaning those that are not taking the Segway tour can still enjoy the magnificent building and grounds.

Where is it Located
What to wear

For a Segway experience, flat soled shoes/trainers are recommended. Please also dress appropriately for the weather on the day of your tour. Your hands will be exposed while riding the Segways, so please bring gloves if it is a little chilly out.

Weather

This activity can go ahead in wind/rain - the Segway is a resilient machine! However in certain extreme conditions, the tour may be cancelled; if you are unsure, please contact the tour providers before setting off for your tour.

The Best Day Out!

I booked this experience with a few friends, we weren't sure what to expect as we have never been segwaying before. But I can honestly say that we had the best time and we are already making plans to go again! Some of us were more confident with the segway than other but we all had a great experience. The guides Tony and Sarah were very enthusiastic which uplifted everyone, they also had a lot of background history on the castle which was very interesting.

Great day out - very scenic!

Beautiful area!! My boyfriend and I decided to be the cringey couple we are and head off to the beautifully romantic setting of Leeds Castle. My mum had previously bought me two segway vouchers from Experience Days as I have always wanted to try out these moving machines. I was not disappointed! I loved the feeling and ended up being better than Liam (haha!). Tony and Sarah were a lovely duo hosting the session and made our tour a great experience. We even had a photo opportunity in front of the beautiful Castle Backdrop, which I'm sure mum will be pinning on the fridge!

What a View!

My friends and I went to Leeds castle to take part in a Segway experience! Sarah and Tony were our guides and were fantastic at making sure everyone was having a great time. The views of the castle were exquisite and we had plenty of photo opportunities during the tour. I was worried our speed would be restricted but this wasn't the case and those of us who loved speed were able to zoom ahead and wait at the meeting points. A brilliant experience I would do again.

Fantastic Gift Idea

I was nervous to Segway at first as I wasn't sure I would be able to do it. It took some practice and by the end I was loving it! Sarah and Tony were our fantastic guides, they were helpful and informative from the word go and would always make sure everybody was enjoying themselves and that nobody was left on their own. This really is unlike any Segway experience as you get to roam around the valleys and the beautiful Leeds Castle. On top of this, you get to learn all about the history of the place too! Brilliantly entertaining all around. Anybody at any age or ability will enjoy this, so the perfect gift to get someone you don't know what to buy them! P.S: Watch out for those mole hills!

Segway day

This was bought for me as a birthday present but the whole family joined in and had a great time. The instructors were good and helpful and by the time we set off we all felt reasonably proficient despite never having done it before. The course around Leeds Castle in Kent was good although it would have been nicer to actually get closer to the pathways around the castle and lake. Enjoyable and entertaining

Excellent

Booked the Segway experience as one of my wife's 60th birthday surprises. We all loved it. The weather couldn't have been better and Lewis and Tony were excellent instructors. We were riding like pros within minutes. Great views of Leeds Castle and its grounds that we had not experienced from previous visits on foot. Looking forward to doing it again.
