Hever Castle encourages visitors to go to Leeds Castle

November 06 2020 | Castle Garden

We never thought we would be asking you this, but 2020 has been a strange year. So please visit Leeds Castle or any visitor attractions that are still able to open their grounds and gardens during the National Lockdown.

“Tourist attractions and tourism needs your support more than ever at the moment.”

Hever Castle has already reported a loss of more than £2m this year and the November lockdown has seen the closure of the Castle and Restaurants (except for takeaway).

We have taken to social media to ask our followers to support the tourism industry and visit our ‘rival’ neighbouring castle.

The social media posts were inspired by fast-food rivals McDonalds and Burger King’s recent collaboration on social media in order to support the industry.

Both Leeds Castle and Hever Castle hope that remaining open can inspire visitors to take walks in the grounds for exercise and also provide a retreat from lockdown to help with their mental health.
