Things to see and do in Leicestershire

Belvoir Castle
Belvoir Castle

Inside the castle are many notable collections, from the military treasures in the guardroom to the stunning staterooms with their impressive period art, tapestries, furniture and sculpture. In contrast to the grandeur of the State Rooms, the Old Kitchen and Bakery will fuel your imagination of ‘below the stairs’ life in 1825. Our School Room and Nursery are well equipped for children to experience lessons and play in Regency times.


Bosworth Field Battleground
Bosworth Field Battleground

The Battle of Bosworth Field was the penultimate battle of the Wars of the Roses, the civil war between the House of Lancaster and the House of York that raged across England in the latter half of the 15th century. Visitors to Bosworth, whether they are schoolchildren, historians, leisure groups, families or leisure seeking day-trippers, can experience what this famous turning point in British history really meant. You can also enjoy a great day out!


Donington le Heath Manor House Museum
Donington le Heath Manor House Museum

The museum is based in a Medieval Manor House dating back to 1280. The house has a fascinating history and is now restored with fine oak furnishings. Visitors to the house can now see restored rooms and displays on medieval life as well as a series of temporary exhibitions on a wide range of subjects. The house is set in recently recreated 17th century style gardens with flower gardens, an orchard, herb gardens and a maze. The adjoining stone barn is home to the Classics Tea Room. Events are all year round with various new permanent exhibitions, a virtual tour and interactive displays.


Great Central Railway
Great Central Railway

Voted number 12 on the list of the 50 greatest railway journeys in the world the Great Central Railway is the UK's only double track, main line heritage railway. It’s the only place in the world where full size steam engines can be seen passing each other – just as it was when steam ruled the rails.


Launde Abbey
Launde Abbey

In peaceful country surroundings in the heart of the East Midlands of England, yet only 30 minutes drive from the centre of Leicester, Launde Abbey retreat centre is a place of prayer and of welcome. It has a resident Anglican community and offers a varied programme of events which are open to all — whether they are of specific faith, or simply wanting to explore. There are also conference facilities available for groups who wish to use the peaceful and beautiful surroundings for their own events.


National Forest
National Forest

The National Forest is one of the country's boldest environmental projects and won the inaugural Sustainable Development UK award in 2008. It is transforming 200 square miles in the centre of England.


National Space Centre
National Space Centre

The National Space Centre is an all weather attraction for all the family. Situated in the heart of the Midlands, located just two miles from Leicester city centre, the centre provides easy access from the M1 and M69.


New Walk Museum and Art Gallery
New Walk Museum and Art Gallery

New Walk Museum & Art Gallery is situated within the historic New Walk area of the city. In 1849 the Literary and Philosophical Society formally presented to the town its various collections, which have grown and developed over the last 160 years into one of the premier museums in the region. New Walk Museum has been the inspiration for many people including Lord Attenborough and Sir David Attenborough, who pursued their love of art and natural history as a result of spending their formative years as regular visitors to the galleries.


Stanford Hall
Stanford Hall

Stanford Hall, built in the 1690s for Sir Roger Cave, is still home to his descendants and is one of the most exquisite examples of the architecture of the period.


Twycross Zoo
Twycross Zoo

Twycross Zoo opened in 1963 on a site in Leicestershire. Initially a comparatively modest collection, it has grown into one of the major British zoos, attracting over 450,000 visitors a year. It is famous for its collection of primates. Situated near the small village of Twycross, the zoo occupies over 40 acres and is set in open countryside. Despite its rural location, it is only four miles from the M42/A42 (which links the M1 and M6) making it readily accessible from anywhere in central England.
