Advice for tourism businesses

Welcome to the official website for Leicestershire

During these difficult times we hope to include as much accurate information as possible about where you can visit across the county. Many of the usual events have been cancelled and we have updated the information as much as possible, however we would advise you to check directly before making any arrangements to visit.

We’re home to some of the most outstanding visitor attractions in the country including:

The out of this world National Space Centre, Britain’s only attraction dedicated to space exploration, Twycross Zoo home to 1000 animals including rare and endangered primates, snow leopards, giraffes and lots of other animals, Bosworth Battlefield and Heritage Centre & King Richard III Visitor Centre telling the story of the last days of the King in the Car Park.

Conkers in the heart of the National Forest woodland with discovery zones, a barefoot walk, assault courses and high ropes, Twinlakes Park and Wheelgate Park with family rides, farmyard animals and birds all set in 100 acres of glorious countryside.
