With over 500 acres of parkland, and the truly magnificent Leeds Castle as a backdrop, it is hard to imagine a more picturesque setting for a Segway Tour.

For those of you not familiar with the Segway be assured that it is incredibly easy to learn to ride, taking just a few minutes to master. We frequently hear people say that they had no idea how easy it would be, or how much fun. Indeed, it is not uncommon for us to see some of our customers three or four times a year, often bringing friends and visitors along to join them.

It is important to note that we have many years experience of operating these tours. This means that we operate within the strict guidelines and safety procedures laid down by the Segway manufacturer.

2013 will be our fifth year at Leeds Castle. We have grown from one standard 35 minute tour with 5 Segways, to now offering two tours ranging from the 35 minute Scenic Tour to a 60 minute Adventure Tour with up to 8 people per tour. We are sure that no matter which tour you choose you will thoroughly enjoy seeing parts of the castle estate from a totally different perspective, as well as views rarely afforded to those who choose to explore on foot.

We look forward to welcoming you to your Segway Tour at Leeds Castle, and don't forget your camera!

We went as a group of 4 for my sons birthday. There were several other people which made it more interesting. I was very nervous but was soon put at ease and had a great time. It was a beautiful day in half term and the scenery was amazing. Would really recommend it if you want a laugh and are... More

As a gift, this was a lovely experience to have been given as we love segway-ing. At the start, the tour was running around 20-30 minutes late. Once we were ready to start, the group spent around 45 minutes just doing the training which was somewhat painstaking as it was a large group and those that were not confident on... More

We went as a family outing and thoroughly enjoyed it. None of us had been on one before and with some trepidation we got on and soon had the gang of it. The operators were exceptionally patient and friendly, plus as it was Halloween weekend they had gone to town on their makeup and costumes. You could see they enjoyed... More

I went for the first time with my family as it was a Bithday gift for my partner. If I am honest is was very scared. However the people who work for Southern Segway were great. I was so well looked after. Althought I was slower than many in the group I soon became comfortable with the experience and joined... More

Really enjoyed having a god at this! It's actually quite easy to get used to. The instructors were really good and make it much more enjoyable and obviously all in the very scenic grounds of Leeds castle. Great fun definitely worth a go!

Even as a person going on my own I was made to feel at ease and enjoyed every second, the first moments of training it feels so alien but Charlie made me feel at home and within a short period of time I was right at home with the segway. Will be definitely be coming back for another your next... More

We had a one and half hour trip around Leeds castle. The two instructors were very friendly and informative. and taught us brilliantly. We were given really clear instructions and safety talk. The training session in the Paddock firstly was helpful. We learnt how to go forward back circle and stop. You just lean a bit ! It's actually very... More

Visited with family members, some of us had been before, others were first timers. We all thoroughly enjoyed our time with Southern Segway. The Segway equipment, both safety hats and machines was well maintained and clean. The individual safety briefings were excellent although a little time consuming with two groups (totalling around 16 people) being trained before setting off. Staff... More
