Welcome to Leicestershire

This is a county with something for everyone, whether it’s long family days in the countryside, a shopping spree, meandering through our villages, maybe a history and heritage weekend, some lively nightlife, or a culture break. This is also a county of contrasts – with an impressive and captivating history, and ancient castles and scenery which have inspired artists, photographers and those who simply want to stand and stare at the great landscapes. There is also ultra-modern shopping, eating out, arts and culture, bags of sporting activities, and some of the best hotels you’ll find in England.
