Leeds Castle for Kids: A Day Trip from Dunkirk

When we travel, we love exploring the city that we are staying in, but we also love to do big day trips to other countries or attractions if possible. A trip to Leeds Castle for kids was the perfect day trip.

Dunkirk is such a perfect location for a home base to explore other cities and destinations nearby. It was a perfect starting point for our WWII themed Normandy road trip, and we were very excited to head across the channel to the UK and explore Leeds Castle for kids and visit the magnificent cliffs of Dover.

A Day Trip from Dunkirk

There are two ways to get to Leeds Castle for kids from Dunkirk for a fun day trip excursion. One is to take the ferry from Calais to Dover and then drive to Leeds, or you can take the Eurotunnel from Calais to Folkstone.

Eurotunnel to Leeds Castle

We take ferries regularly, living on the west coast of British Columbia, so we opted to take the Eurotunnel. It was also a much quicker crossing, and we had heard that it was also a fun experience.

The entire loading process was so slick, with its automated reservation systems upon arrival to their expedited loading systems. It was a quick 30-minute crossing, it felt like riding a subway in your car and we were on our way to Leeds Castle.

Our day trip to Leeds Castle for kids so was much fun for our boys and adults too. The grounds were massive and full of things to do.
