Leeds Castle near Maidstone opening Adventure Golf course and Knights' Stronghold playground

by Lauren Abbott

Leeds Castle is preparing to let down the drawbridge on two much-anticipated new attractions this Saturday.

It has spent months constructing the Knights' Stronghold Playground and Adventure Golf course for families to enjoy.

Both will be officially opened at noon on Saturday (April 13) by children's television presenter Ben Cajee from Cbeebies.

The attractions will open for the first time on Saturday

The huge new adventure playground, suitable for children aged up to 14, includes spiralling slides, fireman’s poles, giant cargo nets and zip wires.

The golf course has also been modelled on the castle, with more challenging holes themed to its daily attractions, such as falconry and the Maze.

Take a look below to see photographs of both attractions ahead of the grand opening:
