Welcome to Leicester and Leicestershire
Enjoy a visit to the cosmopolitan city of Leicester with its bars and top class restaurants, historic museums and cathedral. Visit the exhibition opened to show how the remains of King Richard III were discovered, housed in the black and white timber framed Guildhall. There are always a great variety of shows and musical events taking place at the city's theatres and entertainment venues.
The county of Leicestershire is renowned for its countryside. There are rocky crags in Charnwood Forest, rolling hills in the Welland Valley and acres of new woodland in The National Forest. If you enjoy walking, visit one of Leicestershire's many country parks or take a stroll along some of the many miles of canal towpaths or riverbanks. Or why not take a walk or tour with a qualifed tour guide and learn more about the city and county's history and architecture or flora and fauna?
