Abbey Park is Leicester’s premier park and lies approximately one mile north of the City centre. The River Soar divides this beautiful park into two distinct areas: to the east of the river lies the highly decorative Victorian part of the park with its evergreen shrubberies, trees, lakes and formally planted flower displays and to the west of the river lies the fascinating Abbey Grounds. Within this area are the remains of the twelfth century Leicester Abbey and the ruins of Cavendish House, a seventeenth century mansion.
The recently refurbished cafe provides you with a wide range of refreshments in a welcoming environment. The cafe is located close to the river, in the parks pavilion. In front of the cafe stands the statue of Cardinal Wolsey.
There is a large play area suitable for children of all ages and grassed areas for ball games.
There is a pets corner. This unique area of the park provides a variety of animals for everyone to enjoy. You will find everything from familiar family pets such as rabbits to the less familiar.
