Kirby Muxloe Castle

Kirby Muxloe Castle

This picturesque fortified mansion was built for Lord Hastings, who was dramatically seized and executed by Richard III in 1483.  

Hastings’ descendants still believe they have a direct line to the throne of England.

Explore the atmospheric moated remains – including the fine gatehouse and a complete corner tower – of this brick-built mansion which have been extensively conserved by English Heritage. Make it part of an enjoyable family day out in Leicestershire with a picnic in the grounds or take a walk around the moat.
