BRADGATE DEER PARK, BEACON HILL & SWITHLAND WOODS | 11.5 MILES | LEICS

July 9 @ 9:45 am - 3:30 pm BST

Enjoy the wonders of Bradgate Deer Park, Old John Tower, Highland Cattle, Beacon Hill and Swithland Woods

ABOUT THE WALK:

The walk: If you enjoy a good walk with a variety of things to see and do then this is the trail for you! This 11.5 mile walk takes you through the deer park up to the Old John Tower first (the building looks like a beer glass) and you can see the full deer park from here. We then head towards Beacon Hill and up past the highland cattle then back down towards Swithland wood. Our final leg of the journey is back through the deer park where you can get up close and personal with the deer.

ROUND ROBIN QUESTION: If you could live anywhere, where would it be?

Please arrive by 9.45 am we will set off at 10 am sharp. If this is your first AG walk, then please arrive nice and early and seek out the walk leader who will be wearing a red “walk leader” pin badge.

MEETING PLACE: Meet in the car park (there is a fee for parking, and also toilets in the car park). If you see a blue police box (like Dr Who) then you know you are in the right place. Meet by the pay machines at 9.45 am.

Note: we often meet in places where there is no postcode, so we encourage you to use the What3Words app which will take you to the exact location.
