Walking and guided walks in Leicestershire

Get out into the fresh air, relax and enjoy nature. Head to one of Leicestershire's many parks such as Bradgate Country Park to see the ruins of the childhood home of Lady Jane Grey and the folly Old John, or Market Bosworth Country Park to explore its landscape, or visit one of the parks located in the city such as Abbey Park, Victoria Park or Castle Gardens.

Whether you’re strolling around an historic town, striding between museums, or rambling in the woods, finding your way on foot is a great way to relax, discover new places and meet new people. The best way to get around Leicester is on foot – most sights and attractions are within a short stroll.
