My family and I enjoyed a walk around Bradgate park to the war memorial. We arrived at just before 5 pm, and the car park gates were already closed. We really found the park to be quiet and peaceful, especially when we saw the deer.

We parked in the main car park at Newtown Linford and took the side gate into the path, following the horse trail up a steep slope, through a small copse of trees and onwards up to the War Memorial. This is a breathtaking walk in...More

We enjoyed exploring the park whilst visiting the area with our dog. It’s clearly a popular local place to come for dog walk, but the size of the park meant it never felt crowded. £3 parking for the day felt like great value.

Hiya, always pay and display and never encountered an issue myself. If your ticket hadn't expired why not challenge the issuers? Suggest better to settle first though!
