Bradgate House Ruins, home of Lady Jane Grey, is famous for the peacocks.
The Trust in recent years has been feeding the muster corn via a feed hopper. They now breed and we have around 22 in total.
Food for each bird is around £10.00 a year. You can support our work in caring them. Read more

People hold Bradgate Park close to their hearts throughout their lives, help us protect this and Swithland Wood for everyone to enjoy.When established, the running costs of the Trust were met by both Leicester City Council and Leicestershire County Council. Nowadays the budget for maintaining the Estate is approximately £1.2 million a year and the Charity has to raise over 95% of this itself through events, grants, donations, pay and display parking, sales of Estate products and at our Tearooms and shop.
Your future support could help the Trust achieve remarkable things. We know we have accomplished much, but there is still so much to uncover and share for visitor’s enjoyment in the future.
I am fundraising because Bradgate is near and dear to my heart and I want future generations to get to experience it and reverently appreciate its history.
