Bradgate Park, Newtown Linford
(4.8/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
Cut in two by the River Lin and spanning 344 hectares (850 acres), Bradgate Park is a piece of classic English countryside. On the park grounds, an old hall has an intact chapel and an effigy to the first Earl of Stamford and his wife. Aside from the chapel, the only sections of the hall still standing are the four truncated towers that once flanked the grand house. Hike the park and visit two well-known landmarks, Old John and the war memorial. Pick up a map first at the visitor center at Newtown Linford or the one near Bradgate House in a building called the Deer Barn, which also houses a cafe. The rocks are an attraction in and of themselves: Some of them hold fossils of some of the oldest known life-forms in the area. Consider cycling from the center of Leicester through the park, an easy ride along paved roads.
