Bradate park is one of the finest examples of parkland in the UK, it is also quite enormous. The park has a host of interesting features, either side of the park is a car park costing approximately £3 per car, with a public path running from end to end. Alongside the path is a stream flanked by various sized waterfalls, deer and quite ancient trees in all types and sizes. It is not necessary to walk off the path, but should the adventurous decide to do so there are other things to see, such as "Old John", a folly up the hill (which incidentally is an old volcano) over a mile away, I do warn you, the hill is very large and quite steep in places. Alongside old John is a war memorial too. It must be said that the view from this hill is absolutely superb.
Visiting the park during quite times, it is recommended you go in Winter. If you go in summer, it is very very busy and parking is hard to find, but the beauty counteracts this in seconds once you leave the car.
Not forgetting a rare example of a police box at the entrance to the park on the Newtown Linford side, worth a photo. For the uninitiated, this is the same as the "Dr Who" box.
