Not much to see. The garden was open, but the house was closed to visitors. Garden appears to need a bit of TLC. Was told to visit the church next door, but it was also shut when I visited.

If cycling North-South through Leicester following the excellent cycle network that largely keeps you off busy roads, Belgrave Hall, the gardens and the surrounding buildings are worth stopping and exploring. They are quite serene and well maintained, and somewhat out of keeping with the surrounding area.

The gardens are always lovely with lots of hidden corners, shapes and colour. A real oasis in the city and a great place to take a break from the cycle path between Watermead and Abbey parks. The coffee shop was open on our recent visit which was a welcome bonus with delicious cakes, friendly staff and good coffee. A fascinating and historic building and garden. Had a lovely chat about this unique place with the staff and we shared our enthusiasm for it.
A real shame the gardens cannot be open more often as I would like to share with my friends and also would like to stop there for coffee on our cycle rides.

Belgrave Hall isn't actually a museum as such these days - all the furniture and other stuff has been removed as, apparently, much of it wasn't even contemporary with the building. The result is the reveal of the interior in all its architectural glory and a real chance to soak up the feel of the space. With a little imagination you can almost transport yourself back in time a couple of hundred years to the house's heyday.

The grounds are glorious and a delight to wander around or just to sit in in this haven of tranquility, despite the city traffic that thunders past on the other side of the garden wall. You can even take a picnic! Great for families (although wheelchair users may struggle in some parts as there's gravel and cobbles in places).

We decided to visit Belgrave Hall for the advertised Vintage Fair, the LCC website said that there would be vintage cars, memorabilia, stalls, activities for the children, and much more. Granted it was tipping it down with rain, but all that was there was, three old cars (sixties) and one old taxi. Inside there was a stall selling vintage memorabilia, which was overpriced smelly old tat, a pair of Cindy tights!! come on. There was another stall advertising decorations for weddings, that was it. Outside there was a band playing its heart out, despite the rain, and the marquees stood empty. I asked the girl on the till what she was taking money for, she said it was £2 for adults and a pound for children, I pointed out that the council website said it was free, Oh that's a misprint, she said, but the £2 would allow me to have a go on the Scalextrix. I pointed out that there was nothing there and she agreed. I did not pay for my go on the Scalextrix as it took me all my time not to burst out laughing, being a 68 year old lady and not having the slightest interest in that and I've seen enough Vintage? sixties cars to last me a lifetime, so we left. What is the council thinking of, I wouldn't have paid a penny to get into that rubbish. Surely they can do better than that. If the weather had caused a problem well it wouldn't have been hard to pack up and go home, I have never seen such a load of rubbish in my life.

Took to a trip to Belgrave Hall a few weeks ago as I hadn't been for a number of years. Unfortunately I was quite disappointed, as most of the rooms were closed for renovation - I think I only actually got into around 9 rooms of the house. The gardens are lovely, but I wanted to see the house, and I felt like I only had half an experience.

One of the most attractive and historical places in Leicester, it not far from the city centre, especially Space Centre, excellent for out door activities with family and friends. very good location to Belgrave area.
