Town and city breaks in Leicestershire

There’s zero gravity for mini-astronauts to experience at Leicester’s National Space Centre. Curry fans mop up their aloo gobi at one of dozens of Asian restaurants in the city’s Belgrave Road. The city centre of the county’s main city has recently undergone a style revolution, offering an impressive selection of shopping and unique boutiques. If you fancy a unique day out shopping from your Leicestershire hotel, head to Leicester Lanes, Stoneygate and St Martins Square where not even the experienced second-hand shopper will know where to start.
The market town of Melton Mowbray is the pork pie capital of the world – but don’t go too crazy or you’ll fit into the enormous waistcoat of the19th century’s Daniel Lambert, believed then to be the fattest man in existence. It’s displayed at Leicester’s Newarke Houses Museum.

Holidays in the Leicestershire countryside

At Bosworth Battlefield, where the last great conflict on English soil took place in 1485, you can imagine you’re part of Richard III’s enemy streaming down Ambien Hill. It’s only a short hop from your Leicestershire hotel to the bluebells in the National Forest or carp fishing at Snibston Country Park. Head to one of Leicestershire's many country parks such as Bradgate Country Park to see the ruins of the childhood home of Lady Jane Grey and the folly Old John, or Market Bosworth Country Park to explore its landscape.

Attractions in Leicestershire

Sir Frank Whittle pioneered modern aviation by inventing the jet engine in Lutterworth. You can see the signed bottle of champagne he drank to celebrate his achievement in 1941 at the town’s museum. For inquiring minds, a guided tour of Leicester’s Jain Centre gives an insight into this little-known religion. For a great way to see this wonderful county book a barge from your Leicestershire hotel and take a barge ride down the famous Grand Union Canal. If this form of transport doesn’t float your boat, try a trip on a steam train at the great Central Railway. Book a hotel in Leicestershire with Best Western and become involved with this wonderful and historic county.
