Visit Loughborough

Loughborough is a thriving and varied market town in the heart of Charnwood’s rolling countryside. It offers a wide range of shopping, diverse eating out experiences, family attractions, exciting events and plenty of places to explore.


It is home to the world renowned Loughborough University and its thousands of students create a lively buzz during term times.

As well as the specialist independent shopping streets there are also three shopping centres - The Rushes, Carillon Court and Regent Place – which are home to many top high street brands and the markets in the heart of the town plays an important role in the vitality of Loughborough. 

Throughout the year there’s a range of family friendly activities that take place in the town including the transformation of the Market Place into a virtual seaside where children can play in the sand and parents can relax in the deckchairs!
