Located off the heart of the M1, Leicester has excellent transportation links to the capital and even Europe, making it the vibrant hub of the midlands! East Midlands Trains offer fast, frequent and reliable trains to London, with connections to the Eurostar, making it the perfect place to start a holiday.
With a population of over 330, 000 people, it’s a buzzing and vibrant city, steeped in culture and history. Leicester stands as one of the oldest cities in Britain and, remarkably, still has a vast amount of historical buildings on its streets. Dating back at least 2000 years and with traces of the Celts and Romans still standing, it’s a must visit for history lovers and a beautiful site for city strolls.
As a city that makes the most of its ethnicities the summer is an excellent season to visit Leicester and join in a number of cultural gatherings. The annual Caribbean Carnival is an excellent way to get a colorful culture fix!
