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 Precambrian 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 new 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 listed in the Top 10 Parks in the UK in the 2014 TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice Awards. We stage a variety of events throughout the year including guided walks to explore the Park's history and landscape, wildlife events such as stream dipping, moth trapping and fungi forays, seasonal fairs focussing on local produce and traditional crafts as well as outdoor theatre performances and concerts in the ruins of Bradgate House.

1620s House & Garden
1620s House & Garden(Coalville)

This rare and beautiful house is a surviving example of a family home built in the 13th century and then modernised in 1618. The house has been home to many families over its 700 year history, but the Digby family, which included the Gunpowder Plotter Sir Everard Digby, lived in the house for over two hundred years. It is towards the end of the Digby ownership that the newly refurbished house is focused, showing how people lived in late Elizabethan and early Jacobean times. Visitors can now see the beautifully restored period rooms and talk to our volunteers about the history of the house, the families that lived here and about life in the 1620s. The house is set in beautiful 17th century style gardens with labelled plants and flowers, an orchard, herb gardens and a maze. Visitors can also enjoy light refreshments in the tea room, where a range of merchandise is also available. The site will continue its lively series of events that use re-enactment, crafts, hands-on activities, drama and specialist demonstrations to interpret the history of the site and life at the time. less
