As usual, back in the 60's and 70's this place was beautiful, over the years it has sort of lost it's charm, found Bradgate Park to be far better and steeped in history, but guess it is not bad concidering it is an inner city park.

Several of the earlier reviews do not relate to Leicester Abbey but rather to Leicester Cathedral which is in the city centre and that is the final resting place of Richard III. All that remains of Leicester Abbey is an approximation of the foundations laid out in Abbey Park on the edge of the city, together with the ruins of... More

We visited to see the tomb of Richard III before going on to the exhibition. Took our time going round before stopping at the tomb. The lady who was on duty there was very patient when someone asked if Richard was buried there!! Then she explained to us where the stone came from and pointed out the fossils, and minerals... More

Good old fashioned fun - lots of well looked after green areas to play ball games. Feeding the ducks. Plenty of areas for a picnic, pets corner that is... More
