Bradgate Park is a public park west of Leicester. It has covers a space of around 3 square kilometers with heath, bracken rocky outcrops, small woods, and the river Lin. In 1928 it was bought from the Greys of Groby by Charles Bennion who gave it to the people of Leicestershire. The park is famous for its red and especially fallow deer, during October and November many more deer can be seen, since this is the rutting season. Get up early, or visit the park late in the evening to see them at their best. Rival males will fight fiercly, and often clash antlers, if you are lucky you may witness this dramatic feat. The park also includes the ruins of Bradgate House, the birthplace of Lady Jane Grey, and Old John Tower.
Directions: Bradgate Park lies between the villages of Newtown Linford, Anstey, Cropston and Swithland. Access is from three entrances, Newtown Linford, Hallgates, and Hunts Hill. Parking is available with cost.
