Leicester City Centre – one of the oldest in England
Leicester is a very historical city and one of the oldest cities in England. It was founded by the Romans in 50CE and so the city has many fascinating historical attractions. There is an ancient Roman forum and baths, and the nearby St Nicholas church was built over 1200 years ago.
The town also has a lot of culture, there are many excellent museums and art galleries exhibiting both contemporary and art from other periods in history. The city has experienced rapid growth through the centuries and is now a very friendly and cosmopolitan town with people from all races, backgrounds and cultures making Leicester very culturally diverse.
There is excellent nightlife too with plenty of bars, music venues and nightclubs. Many cultural performances are held so there is something for everyone. Football fans can also visit the city’s football club ground, King Power Stadium, and watch an exciting home game of the Foxes.
There is no shortage of overnight accommodation for visitors on short breaks that will suit all budgets, from cheap b&b’s to 5-star Leicester city hotel rooms. There are also a number of low cost properties in central Leicester. Much of the accommodation to rent for the night is situated within walking distance of the main attractions and touristic sights.
Where to Stay near the railway station
