Bradgate Park, Newtown Linford

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.

  • A beautiful place to lose yourself in for a day .Well patrolled with Wardens and Deer roam freely around it`s 850 acres.  more »
  • Good place to meet up with friends for a walk to the cafe for a slice of cake. Plenty of places for the kids to play hide and seek and a good path so the kids can go on their scooters.  more »
  • Visited yesterday and was pleasantly surprised that there were quite a few parking spaces free - maybe the snow over the last few days put people off! Lovely opportunity for photographs.  more »
