Visit Leicestershire in 2019

Hello 2019! This year make sure visiting Leicestershire is on your bucket list! There's lots to see and do for families and couples and for all interests whatever the weather!


Enjoy monkeying around at Twycross Zoo

Travel to Bradgate Park and walk through the landscape that Lady Jane Grey, nine days Queen of England once explored. You can either walk along the smooth pathway through the middle of the park, starting at either Newtown Linford or Cropston, and view the deer and the ruins of Bradgate house. Or take a more energetic walk and start from Hunts Hill and walk up to Old John and see glorious views across Leicestershire and beyond.

Or why not visit Conkers which has a unique mix of indoor and outdoor experiences. Explore 120 acres of maturing woodland, the 450 metre sensual barefoot walk, the Conkerchoo train, woodside and lakeside trails, amazing adventure play to keep the kids entertained for hours.

Meet over 500 animals from almost 150 species at Twycross Zoo, including some of the most endangered on our planet. Renowned as a specialist primate zoo, Twycross has a wide variety of monkeys and apes including the UK’s only group of bonobos.
