The Park is currently closed, but you can enjoy shared memories and virtual trips thanks to visitors, volunteers and rangers on the Bradgate Park Trust Facebook Page.

Did you know the park is also the birthplace and childhood home of the nine days 16th century Queen of England, Lady Jane Grey? Explore the ruins of her home - one of the earliest country houses built for royalty.

Enjoy the rich history and the enchanting beauty of almost untouched nature; marvel at oak trees that are over 500-years old in the medieval deer park, see Old John tower - one of Leicestershire's most famous landmarks at highest point of the park, be peaceful alongside the Leicestershire Yeomanry war memorial for the Boer War and World Wars 1 and 2, and walk alongside the beautiful stretch of water, waterfalls and pools of the River Lin.
