Do

Calling all budding witches and wizards â?? enrol your children into the Leeds Castle Witches and Wizards Academy. From now until Saturday, children can enjoy a day of magical excitement in the spooky Kent countryside.

Receive your quest card and embark on a journey through the castle and gardens where ghoulish characters hide special spells from potion making to broomstick riding. Younger visitors will enjoy the woodland walk with the extra fun of a chocolate prize. Gather at the maze at 2pm for your chance to win the daily fancy- dress competition.

Tickets are from £16 and children under four go free. See leeds- castle.com.
