Surprise Dad with a Leeds Castle Gift Experience this Father’s Day

As life gradually starts to return to normal, Father’s Day will be one to celebrate this year on Sunday 20th June. What better way to thank Dad for all he does, than with a Leeds Castle Gift Experience.

This year, Leeds Castle has some fantastic outdoor events planned for 2021 and tickets will give the wow factor to your Father’s Day gift. On the 10th July, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will once again take to the stage for the Leeds Castle Concert. Renowned conductor John Rigby will host this fantastic open-air classical concert which will this year include modern performances of classic tunes from the ‘Down for the Count Swing Orchestra’ as well as a programme of world-class music, an emotive Spitfire flypast and an impressive fireworks finale.

The Leeds Castle Fireworks Spectacular will also return on 6th and 7th November. Undoubtedly the biggest and best pyrotechnic display in the South East of England, this incredibly popular event combines fireworks to make you ‘oooh’ and ‘ahhh’ and music that you will want to sing and dance along to, whilst lighting up the night sky high above the historic Castle. Tickets for both events are on sale online now or purchase a gift voucher to let Dad choose!

Ideal for Father’s Day, gift vouchers can also be used for a host of luxury Leeds Castle experiences including a year’s worth of visits to the 900-year old Castle, golf coaching on the fairways, treats from the shops or a delicious Sunday lunch overlooking the moat. Adopt one of the Castle’s birds of prey or book for Dad to meet them with a Falconry experience. Make his day at Leeds Castle even more memorable with an overnight stay.

The Castle gift shops are well stocked with a wide selection perfect for Father’s Day. Choose from a range of Kentish craft beers, ciders, exclusive Leeds Castle Gin, traditionally brewed medieval mead, traditional sweets and treats, books and more. You do not need an admission ticket to visit the Leeds Castle shop at the Main Entrance and parking is free.

If you are looking for a gift to really make Dad smile and he has a passion for birds of prey, treat him to a Leeds Castle Falconry Experience to get up close and fly these magnificent animals. There are a range of experience days to choose from including ‘Falconer for the Day’, ‘Owl Experience’ and ‘Hawk Walk’.

Half day experiences start at £85, book now and receive 10% off your chosen experience until the end of July using code FDAY21.

Spend some quality time together with an ‘Afternoon Tea for Two’ at Leeds Castle. You will be served a variety of tempting sandwiches and sweet delectable delights in one of the luxurious state rooms, on selected dates throughout the year. The last private owner Lady Baillie used these exquisite rooms for entertaining her illustrious weekend guests in the 1930s and today, you too can enjoy the Castle’s famous hospitality in the same stunning surroundings. Gift vouchers can be purchased to cover the cost of Afternoon Tea for Two, with prices starting at £84.

For the active Dad, treat him to a day playing golf on the historic Leeds Castle 9-hole par 34 course, which dates back to the 1930s. The Leeds Castle Golf Club offers pay and play golf, great value memberships and expert coaching for all ages and skill levels. Help him improve his game or pick up some expert tips by booking him a lesson at the Leeds Castle Golf Academy to receive coaching with Head PGA Professional Scott Stevens.

Over the course of the last 900 years, Leeds Castle has been home to six medieval Queens of England, served as a Tudor Palace for King Henry VIII and hosted some of the most influential people of the 1930s. So what better way to spoil Dad than with an overnight stay at this great treasure house of England. Overnight choices include B&B rooms in the Stable Courtyard, self-catered Holiday Cottages in the grounds of the estate and even medieval glamping in the summer months. For a really special treat, opt for the 5-star Maiden’s Tower Bedrooms across the drawbridge and adjacent to the Castle itself and sleep in 16th century Tudor opulence for the night. Gift vouchers are redeemable against all accommodation options, please check the website for up to date prices and availability.
