Belgrave Hall


Belgrave Hall

Belgrave Hall is a historic house, providing an oasis of peace and quiet in a busy city.

The hall was built in the early 18th century in what was then a small village three miles from the town of Leicester. Now city traffic passes, almost unnoticed, just beyond the garden walls.

Edmund Cradock, a hosiery merchant, built Belgrave Hall but died soon after its completion. The Hall has had several owners over the years, including John Ellis – a wealthy businessman who was responsible for bringing the railways to Leicester.

Visitors can explore Belgrave Hall and the beautiful surrounding gardens on special event days. From April to September the gardens are open every Wednesday and the first full weekend of the month, with additional special events open to the public. Visit the website for more details on specific open days. 

Guided tours can be arranged for those who want to discover more about the history of the Hall. The stable block, gardens and marquee are available to book for weddings, receptions, meetings and events for businesses and community groups.
