Ages: all ages

Venue type: Outdoor

For a lovely family walk with all the trimmings - including ancient trees and a Story Walk - take a stroll down to Bradgate Park.

It really is picture perfect with a lush mix of woodland and bracken covered slopes, all peppered with rocky outcrops which contain some of the oldest rocks in England! The River Lin runs through the lower park and would be a great spot to stop for a picnic and try to spy some of the local deer. Just don’t miss the gnarled, old oak trees, some of which are over 500 years old.

Explore the deepest nooks and crannies by downloading a free self-guided Story Walk. They’re also available in handy leaflet form and are packed with scientific facts, a hand-drawn map and directions to lead your little adventurers along the way.
