On its own it's okay but as part of the Abbey park experience it's very very nice. Not much information available on the Abbey itself.

A great day out in good weather! Explore the history behind the ruins of this medieval abbey while strolling among beautiful greenery and along the river Soar too. There's a cafe near by too and kids can feed the ducks and geese.

ok for a week-end visit. pluses: great landscape, historical ruins, fresh air, species of plants to study, peace and quiet minus: if the weather is hot, you can suffer from dehidration, nearest place where you can get some water is actually not so close...

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.
