The Heart of England/Peak District

Step back in time and delve into Leicestershire's interesting history and heritage. Discover Roman ruins, majestic castles, haunted medieval buildings, historic events and much more.

Leicester is well known as an important Roman settlement, and evidence of this can be seen at the Jewry Wall Museum in the city. Take a guided walk around Castle Park, Leicester's old town and see the medieval Guildhall and the Great Hall of Leicester Castle.

In the west of Leicestershire, visit the Battle of Bosworth Visitor Centre, and find out all about the battle that claimed the life of King Richard III. Battle re-enactments and other historic events regularly take place here.

The county boasts many splendid stately homes including the 17th century Stanford Hall, the majestic Belvoir Castle and the unique Calke Abbey. Medieval jousting festivals are often held at Belvoir, and also at Rockingham Castle near Market Harborough.

Leicestershire is also home to Foxton Locks, a remarkable piece of Victorian engineering, where you can walk along the inclined plane of locks, enjoy a family day of orienteering or hire a narrowboat and enjoy the scenery from the water.

If you enjoy the great outdoors, then you will find lots of thing to enjoy in Rutland, England's smallest County. Outdoor sports are extremely well catered for with plenty of walking and cycling available, plus fishing, golfing and the huge choice of watersports that take place on Rutland Water. The family can Discover Rutland with a Treasure Trail, a fun way to see the market towns of Oakham and Uppingham.

Fleckney is the nearest village and just a mile down the road. It's amenities include a chemist, Co-op supermarket, post office, newsagents, butchers, two pubs, a fish and chip shop and a Chinese take-away. There is also a children’s playground on Leicester Road.

There are some lovely unspoilt villages in South Leicestershire including Saddington, Smeeton Westerby, Mowsley, Gumley, Foxton, The Langtons, Slawston, Medbourne and Nevill Holt amongst many. Our nearest town is Market Harborough with its famous 400 year old Grammar School on stilts! The town was established in the mid 12th century and was used in 1645 as Charles I’s headquarters before the decisive Battle of Naseby. Other notable sites include St. Dionysius Church, the Town Hall and the remaining building of Symington’s corset factory, famous for the “Liberty Bodice”, now housing the town’s museum, library and Council Offices.
