A haunting ruin encompassed by captivating scenery this 16th-century ruins are nestled in the heart of Bradgate Park, near the village of Newtown Linford in Leicestershire, central England.
The construction work of the large mansion was started by Thomas Grey, 1st marquis of Dorset, in 1499, and it was finally finished by his son in 1520. Cool place to wander around and to allow your imagination, regarding Tudor times, to run riot. Don't stay on the bottom road, be adventurous and head up towards Old John. This will reward you with some of the best views in Leicestershire. The best time to visit is mid-week in the autumn but beware the Red deer herd (there's also a Fallow deer herd) during the rut.
