Lady Jane's Tower, Bradgate House
Lady Jane's Tower, Bradgate House
The interior of the octagonal tower, part of the east wing of the ruined Tudor mansion. It is believed that this was used by the ill-fated Lady Jane Grey as her private retreat; reputedly a highly intelligent girl, it is said that she would read Plato here in Greek at the age of thirteen whilst looking out across the park.
