Entry to this event is included with your admission ticket. Alysha Sargent, head of engagement and events at Leeds Castle said: “This year’s show boasts more activities and a wider range of cars, from classic cars to military vehicles. “Sit in a replica 1928 Bugatti complete with leather gloves and helmet to try on, enjoy an interactive family show telling how Britain fell for motor racing, have a go in the Vesaro F1 simulator (once used by Lewis Hamilton!) and be entertained with live music from The Redfords. “There will be hundreds of cars on display from Ferraris and Porsches to WWII and vintage vehicles. Don’t forget to try some of the delicious food on sale…all served from vehicles, of course!” Admission tickets cost £24.50 for adults; £21.50 for seniors and visitors with disabilities (carer goes free); £16.50 for children (under 4s free).
