Leicester City

 

Leicester City is a real cultural destination. The Cathedral area is great place to while away a few hours. Not only in the cathedral itself, but the exhibition and museum dedicated to Richard III is a must see. Leicester Guildhall, built in 1390,  is free to enter, and an utterly fascinating building.

Leicester is one of the most vibrant and multicultural cities in England, and its city centre is a feast for everyone. Shopping, dining and sight seeing are on the cards, with theatres, music and sporting venues well catered for. 

And how can we not mention one of Leicester’s jewels in the crown….The National Space Centre! Just outside the city centre is this captivating exhibition. It’s more than an exhibition, it’s a fully immersive experience. I challenge you not to have a great time here.  

 

 

Market Towns and Gastronomy

 

If you’re a gastronome, you are going to love Leicestershire! 

The market town of Melton Mowbray is a great place to start when you hire your VW Campervan in Leicestershire. The home of the pork pie, Melton is the Rural Capital of Food, and why not book in for a pie making demonstration or a pie making workshop? Certainly not to be sniffed at is the production of numerous cheeses in the area. Cropwell Bishop, Long Clawson and Colston Bassett are internationally famous for their Stilton Cheese production. 

Leicestershire is chock full of truly pretty market towns. With lots of independent shops and and dining options, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Ashby de la Zouch, Loughborough, Lutterworth, Kibworth, Market Harborough and Market Bosworth are rich with gastro pubs to sample the local hospitality and of course, the food!

Bosworth Battlefield is a must see for history fans. There is also Belvoir Castle, Conkers, the Great Central Railway, Twycross Zoo and Rockingham Castle. These are all great days out, and can easily built into your tour of Leicestershire. 

If you are into the Great Outdoors, you will not be disappointed. The National Forest Way long walk extends into Leicestershire, and Charnwood Forest has a multitude of walks and cycle trails for every ability. Hicks Lodge and The Cloud Trail are great for family cycles.
