  • Nice park to walk around. Kids love going there. Plenty to see and do, like the animal section old ruins, ornimental gardens,cafe. Nice river and lake. Also hold some good events especially the fireworks! But last year's fireworks was abosoluty packed! Too many people.
  • Awesome park... plenty to do and see, including a small zoo area. Very well kept.. and its free entry and plenty of free parking. How can it be anything other than a 5/5 ?
  • Definitely the best park in town and must have place for visitors. There's pay and display car park inside but you can find free parking around it. Lots of things to do and see all free like animal enclosure, tennis court, playground, lake with pedal boats (small charge for boats), miniature railway etc
  • Amazing park. Amazing facilities. Has petting zoo and also a Park Gym. Little steam train track, boating in the summer months. River runs through the centre of the Park. They also have an Asian Mela along with a huge fun fair which stays for a weekend. Fabulous free facility.
  • A big natural park with the possibility to do a lot of things. If you are a child, you will enjoy. And if you are an adult, as well.

Where to stay in Leicester

A B&B near Leicester Clock Tower is within walking distance of the main attractions. Charming architecture surrounds the clock tower square and makes a lovely backdrop to walking tours of the city. For a luxury hotel, consider staying in a renovated Victorian building on the outskirts of the city center.
