You have to buy a yearly ticket for £25. You can come back as many times as you wish during the year but what about if you don't live in the UK? I think it should be a cheaper one time entrance available.

Leeds Castle takes you to the past showing 900 years of history. It also has a nice play area and a maze for the kids. They welcome their guests by offering mead.
