Bradgate Park is one of Leicestershire’s most well-known and popular attractions welcoming around 900,000 visitors per year. 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 ‘The Forgotten Queen’ who after just 9 days on the throne as queen of England, she 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. This is a ghost walk like no other!
Guests must be aged 16 years and over
It goes with saying this site is steeped in history and a truly active area. We have caught some amazing pictures on these walks that cannot be explained away. The use of ghost detection equipment i.e KII meters has demonstrated on a regular basis that this area is extremely active.
Light anomalies seen with the naked eye and physical sensations of being pushed and grabbed are common experiences and the feeling of being followed and watched is difficult to shake off. This ghost walk is very unique in many ways!
The ghost walk is medium lead and an historian is also present. Haunted Heritage Guests will have the use of paranormal detection equipment throughout the walk. Please come suitably dressed as the walk is open to the elements.
