Things to see and do in Leicestershire

The fascinating National Space Centre in Leicester is one of the county’s top attractions, and you could combine a visit there with seeing some of the city’s other sights, such as its castle, cathedral and abbey with its neighbouring park.

If you’re after some more space to stretch your legs then head to Brocks Hill Country Park, Bradgate Park or Attenborough Nature Reserve. From historical landmarks and wide open natural spaces to an array of local museums, leisure attractions and beauty spots, you’ll never be stuck for great ways to spend your time come rain or shine.

 

Education

There are lots of excellent schools across Leicestershire where you’ll be happy to send your kids, including the highly regarded Market Bosworth School, which is rated as outstanding by Ofsted. Fellow mixed secondary, Rushey Mead School in Leicester is also outstanding, along with the city’s Beauchamp College.

If you’re looking for good primary schools in Leicester, then Whitehall Primary School and Christ the King Catholic Primary School are as good as it gets according to Ofsted. Elsewhere, Loughborough’s Holywell Primary School and Brocks Hill Primary in Oadby are also classed as outstanding.

 

Leicestershire transport links

With an extensive public transport network system to rely on which includes buses, trains and park and ride services, as well as accessible buses, you’ve also got East Midlands airport just to the north of the county border.

You can use the M1 which runs to the west of Leicester to get to the airport, depending on where you live, with the same motorway heading north to Nottingham, Sheffield and Leeds, as well as south to Northampton, Luton and London.

 

The Leicestershire property scene

With hotspots like Leicester outstripping the national average in house price rises, Leicestershire’s property market has seen some excellent growth in recent years. An array of 2, 3, 4 and even 6 bedroom homes you can find in developments just over outside Leicester city centre and off Somerset Avenue are certainly helping to drive property prices.

Whether this sounds like the investment for you, or you’d rather put your money into a 1 bed apartment in the Lubbesthorpe area or a 4 bed family home surrounded by open countryside just outside Coalville, you could make your money go further with offers like Movemaker and Part Exchange.
