About Leicestershire

Leicestershire is steeped in history, as evidenced by remains of 76 miles of Roman road, as well as Anglo-Saxon roads and bridges.

Leicester gained fame in 2012 when the remains of King Richard III were found under a car park.

Today, Leicester is a bustling, cosmopolitan city with several popular attractions, including the Leicester Museum and Art Gallery, Leicester Cathedral, and The National Space Centre.

The wider county also offers plenty of outdoor beauty spots, including country parks and woodlands – perfect for rambling and hiking.

While Leicester itself offers plenty of shopping and entertainment options, the UK’s second city, Birmingham, is only an hour’s drive west.
