The famous city of Leicester lies in the heart of the East Midlands. Popular with tourists worldwide, there's plenty to explore and discover here. Set up camp in your holiday rental in Leicester and enjoy everything this wonderful city has to offer.
Leicester has a long history that spans back at least two millennia. There's still evidence of Roman influence, you just need to know where to look. (Hint: St Nicholas's Church is a good place to start!)
This cosmopolitan city is almost overflowing with activities for you and the family. Visit museums, galleries, theatres, attend festivals and explore the wonderful combination of urban city, natural beauty and ancient heritage.
What to Do
If you're looking for peace and quiet, go to Abbey Park. Indulge in the gorgeous scenery, go for a stroll, take a picnic or even walk your dog in these picturesque grounds.
No visit to Leicester is complete without visiting the cathedral. Make sure to bring your camera with you!

UR STAY Serviced 2 Bedroom Apartments- Templar House
A great stay!!
I had a great stay in the apartment. I hosted a family get together and was very happy with the space and cleanliness in and around the apartment. We all had a great time and enjoyed watching movies after our family meal.
A rice cooker would’ve come in handy during food prep, but we made do.
Will definitely book again next time in Leicester. …
The Cotton Mill, in the heart of Leicester
Perfect in every way!
We stayed at the Cotton Mill for 18 days in June/July 2013 and we loved it! It clean, nicely decorated and well supplied. The city center, shopping, bus station, train station, restaurants and market were all nearby. We especially loved shopping for fresh produce at the Leicester market and making our meals in the well-supplied kitchen. The washing machine was perfect for keeping our clothing clean and the wifi was fast and worked perfectly. We have been travelling around Europe since April staying in vacation rentals and so far the Cotton Mill has been our favorite! If we ever return to the Leicester area will will definitely book the Cotton Mill! …
UR STAY Apartments 1 Bedroom Suite- Templar House
Really Nice Flat - Stayed for four months as part of Business Trip
I stayed in a really nice and modern flat as part of UR stay apartments in Templar House in for a period of four months. I was working in Leicester for business and did try other serviced apartments but this was by far the best. Really clean and quiet but in an ideal location right in the city centre. Pretty much everything was in walking distance incl. Tesco and lots of bars and restaurants. The flat is facing side street in the centre so nice and quiet...I got good nights rest each night. The flat has a nice décor and modern theme. It is extremely clean and gets high quality service once a week. I was really impressed with the Jacuzzi bath! Also TV has Netflix included as part of the set up and lots of other channels. Will definitely recommend and stay again if I travel to Leicester! …
