With over 2,000 years of history, Leicester has been a stage for some remarkable historical dramas. Uncover the stories of the city’s ancient Roman quarter and Old Town, walk medieval streets to see the final resting place of King Richard III, discover the secrets of great museums or eat out in some remarkable buildings to savour a true taste of the local heritage.

Leicester can claim to be the UK’s Space city and an out of this world experience awaits at the multi-award-winning National Space Centre. Visitors can explore six galleries crammed full of rockets, satellites and meteorites, take in a show at the UK’s largest domed planetarium, and ascend the iconic rocket tower.
