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.
