Attraction Information

For a lovely family walk with all the trimmings - including ancient trees and a Story Walk - take a stroll down to Bradgate Park. A public park, with lots of public footpaths, that has also been a deer park for the last 800 years! Wowee!

Landscape & Environment
It really is picture-perfect, with its lush mix of woodland and bracken-covered slopes. All peppered with rocky outcrops, which contain some of the oldest rocks in England! The landscape is also quite rugged and wild, making it the perfect place to escape from everyday life. 

The River Lin, the shortest river in Leicester, runs through the lower park and is a great spot to stop for a picnic and try to spy some of the local deer. This amazing park is rich in wildlife and the kids can even have a splash about in the shallow waters. Just don’t miss the ancient rocks and gnarled, old oak trees, some of which are over 500 years old! n

Guided Walks & Deers
Explore the deepest nooks and crannies by downloading a free self-guided Story Walk. You can learn all about the Red and Fallow deer that reside here. They have an impressive herd size of around 550 animals! And these walks help visitors understand more about them. With information that is also available in handy leaflet forms, packed with scientific facts, a hand-drawn map and directions to lead your little adventurers along the way.

Bradgate House
Explore Bradgate House too, the earliest country house to ever be built in England. It was the childhood home of Lady Jane Grey who was Queen of England for 9 days! It's also one of Leicester's famous landmarks, so it's a definite must-see! And if you don't fancy walking along hills and rugged landscapes, wander in the lower part of the park where you'll find the visitor centre and the Deer Barn. As well as the cafe for some much-needed energy supply. This beautiful park has much to offer, making it a great family day out!
