Three car parks are available for use by visitors. They are located at the main entrance points to Bradgate Park

Newtown Linford (entrance within the village, off Bradgate Road – alongside the Church). This is the Main entrance and leads to most picturesque areas of Park. Newtown Linford is our busiest car park and, if you are looking for peace and quiet on a busy day or just a different walk, you may like to try one of our other car parks.
