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

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.
Maximum Group Size: 8
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.
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.
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.
