There's so much to see and do...

Leicester and Leicestershire have lots of award-winning attractions and a fabulous range of festivals for your group to enjoy.

You might prefer to visit a museum or gallery, or hire a boat on the Grand Union Canal or travel back in time on a steam train at the Great Central Railway. You could enjoy a local festival, or explore a Leicestershire stately home.

Take your group and your tastebuds on a gastronomic journey around Leicester and Leicestershire. You’ll find Michelin starred restaurants, awarding-winning chefs, rural country pubs, contemporary restaurants and country tea rooms where you can enjoy locally produced goodies.

If you're looking for a foodie activity for your group to enjoy why not try making your own traditional Melton Mowbray pork pie, or visit a brewery for a tour and real ale tasting session or even try your hand at shaking a cocktail?
