Bradgate Park is one of Leicestershire’s most well-known and popular attractions welcoming around 900,000 visitors per year. Regarded as a picturesque tranquil oasis, it is a favourite with dog walkers and for family days out. Bradgate Park has a long history. In 1445 the park was owned by the Grey family. The most well-known former Grey resident of Bradgate House is Lady Jane Grey who, after just 9 days on the throne as queen of England, was executed at the Tower of London for high treason.
It is the ghost of Lady Jane Grey which is perhaps the most well-known at the park. Legend has it that on New Years Eve a ghostly coach leaves the ruins and travels to nearby All Saints Church. As Lady Grey climbs out of the coach, she and the coach vanish! Others report ghostly disembodied voices, sounds of military drums and other eerie unexplained sounds. Apparitions have been witnessed and photographed on many occasions. There are many reported cases of phenomena and Bradgate Park has become notorious to locals and mentioned in many paranormal publications.
