Attraction Information

  • Parks and Playgrounds icon Parks and Playgrounds

Suitable for all ages

Venue type: Outdoor

Bradgate Park is rich in history, full of nature to appreciate, and beautiful scenery to enjoy throughout the year. It is hard to believe that this medieval woodland is only 6 miles from the centre of Leicester!
There is a great mix of woodland, extensive sweeps of parkland, bracken covered slopes, huge areas of grass, and rock outcrops that contain some of the oldest rocks in England. You will also some mighty gnarled oak trees, some of which are over 500 years old!
The river Lin runs through the Lower Park and it is a great spot for a picnic or to watch the deer while the kids paddle in the shallows.
A Visitor Centre in the middle of the park has an exhibit telling the story of Bradgate and its fascinating human and natural history. You can also see the ruins of Bradgate House, plus Old John Tower, an 18th century folly built on the highest point in the park that was the early home of Lady Jane Grey.
Check online before your visit to download one of the free self guided Story Walks that are available for kids and families.
