Summary

A Walk in Castle Hill Country Park – Castle Hill Quarter

Castle Hill Country Park is located right on the edge of Leicester. Starting from the Beaumont Lodge Shops on Astill Lodge Road, Beaumont Leys we take a pleasant stroll through the grasslands and leafy woodlands of the historic ‘Castle Hill’ quarter, a piece of local countryside.

Note: Paths here are not surfaced and the terrain is soft and uneven. Paths are usually good during summer when the ground is firm, but it can be muddy in the wetter seasons. Suitable footwear is recommended. Walkers may prefer to walk in company as this area can feel a little isolated.  

History and wildlife leaflets of Castle Hill Country Park are available on Leicester City Council’s website: www.leicester.gov.uk/leisure-and-culture/parks-and-open-spaces/our-parks/castle-hill-country-park/
