Herds of Red and Fallow Deer still roam freely across the Park's 800 acres today.The Park is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest for its importance as a wildlife habitat and its geological interest - the 600 million year old Precamrian rocks here are some of the oldest in England. Bradgate House, built around the year 1500, was one of the first unfortified, brick-built country houses in the country and was the childhood home of Lady Jane Grey and played an important role in the English Civil War. Abandoned in the 18th Century, the house is now an evocative ruin set in a landscape that has changed little since the house's heyday. Bradgate offers visitors the chance to experience surprisingly wild and unspoilt countryside within a short travelling time of Leicester, Nottingham and Derby and is only 10 minutes from the M1 (J21 or 22). Explore the story of the Park in our Visitor Centre, stop for a cup of tea or lunch in one of our two tearooms or just bring a picnic and sit by the river. Bradgate Park was Runner-Up in the category of Large Visitor Attraction of the Year at the Leicester & Leicestershire Excellence in Tourism Awards 2013. « less
