Leicester City Centre – one of the oldest in England


b&b roomLeicester 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.

starSave more than 50%

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 that will suit all budgets, from cheap b&b’s to 5-star 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


leicester railway stationThere is no shortage of cheap hotels, apartments and bed and breakfast accommodation in the city. The best place to stay is in and around the city centre as this area is close to all of the main attractions, cafes, restaurants and night spots. The centre is also very attractive and it is possible to walk everywhere.

The train and coach services are all within walking distance and there are plenty of transport links to other parts of the town. Visitors that want to explore the beautiful countryside and attractions just outside Leicester will find it easy to get a train or bus from the stations.

As well as budget establishments, there are more upmarket options for rent in the centre, especially around St Nicholas Circle, which is at the end of the high street. There are also bed and breakfast (last minute) accommodation and 5-star hotels at the south of the city. This area is perfect for those who would like to stay somewhere a little quieter.
