Things to see and do

Urban life can be enjoyed in Leicester, a location packed with history, culture, attractions and great shopping.

The city’s historical past can be explored at the King Richard III Visitor Centre. Standing on the medieval friary of the Grey Friars, where the king’s remains were buried over 500 years ago, you can discover the connections the monarch shares with the city through a series of exhibitions.

The award-winning National Space Centre is another of Leicester’s highlights, and the UKs largest attraction dedicated to space. Also housing the UK’s largest 360-degree planetarium, it has six galleries, Rocket Tower and S.I.M ride.

The Highcross Shopping Centre is great for shoppers, and includes a range of high street favourites, restaurants, a cinema and bars.

For more quirky, unusual items, head to the Lanes where you’ll find independent retailers displaying one off items. From vintage to contemporary, you’ll find the ideal gift here.

When evening falls, Leicester doesn't disappoint. The Curve Theatre showcases world premieres and West End productions. Ballet, opera and comedy can be found at De Montfort Hall, and there are various restaurants and bars throughout the city.

If you love the great outdoors, Conkers is an attraction in the National Forest. Here you’ll find over 120 acres of grounds and a sculpture trail, wildflower glade, eighteen-stage assault course and treetop panorama. Indoors you’ll find four discover zones, along with the Enchanted Forest Adventure Play area.

Further highlights in Leicestershire include hiring a boat on the Grand Union Canal, taking a steam train on the Great Central Railway and exploring market towns such as Melton Mowbray with its Artisan Cheese Fair, food festivals and country fairs.
