Quieter side of the very popular Bradgate Park, and very popular with local dog walkers on weekday mornings in school term time. The main entrance is on the other side of the park, but this also has a massive car park and WCs (not disabled WCs). The tower is an 18th century folly, and the logo of the park.
P&D parking. Old John car park is off Sharpley Hill/Warren Hill and has a brown and white tourist sign for the car park, opposite a turn into Benscliffe Road. If you live locally it's definitely worth getting the annual parking permit from the council. Italian ice cream cart in summer.
You'll see lots of paths and tracks from the car park. Head up the hill to see the view from Old Johns Tower. The park itself is over 800 acres and has been a deer park since medieval times. Lots of dogs come here, so please make sure your dog is on lead where required, and not chasing the deer.
