Things to See & Do

Leicester and Leicestershire is a destination packed with things to see and do ... whatever the weather.

Leicestershire cannot fail to inspire you. From great family attractions to top class restaurants, there's plenty to discover.  You might prefer to visit a museum or gallery, or hire a barge on the Grand Union Canal or travel back in time on a steam train at the Great Central Railway. You could enjoy a unique local festival, or explore a Leicestershire stately home.

Experience contemporary, inspirational shopping in Leicester or browse the markets in our market towns, and once you're all shopped out, why not relax in a stylish city bar or restaurant. Alternatively, take life at a more leisurely pace and relax with friends over a pub lunch, or jump on a bike and explore the countryside.
