Event description

Description

Abbey Park is a fine example of a classic late Victorian park and provided the people of Leicester with many facilities, from bandstand to boating lake and colourful flower beds to festivals. It was opened in 1882 by the Prince of Wales and this free walk will show you both the commemorative plaque and ceremonial tree from the opening day.

Until 1932 the park was bordered by the river, then Abbey Park Part 2 was opened, taking in the grounds of the long lost Leicester Abbey, at one time one of the richest in the country and famous as the burial place of Henry VIII's one time chancellor, Cardinal Wolsey.

Join one of Leicester's Blue Badge tourist guides for a New Year's Eve tour of this urban gem, one of Leicester favourites for more than 130 years.

It's a Stroll in the Park!
