Description

Come along to this fantastic free guided walk of Castle Gardens in Leicester to celebrate the city's Heritage Open Days! The Story of Parks project is hosting two other walks around Leicester's parks between the 7th and the 10th of September 2017 - so look out for Abbey Park and Victoria Park too!

Book on Eventbrite or call the Visit Leicester booking office on 0116 299 4444 to book your place directly. Meet in front of the West Bridge Gates.

The one hour walk will be led by an experienced Blue Badge Guide. Just a few minutes walk from the bustle of the busy city centre, come enjoy these peaceful formal gardens. Discover more about its history, its place in Industrial Leicester and its link with Leicester Castle and the motte. There will be plenty to explore as you ramble along the Grand Union Canal, viewing the beautiful planting, the stunning rock garden and of course, the statue of Richard III, commemorating his burial nearby after the Battle of Bosworth.
