Things to see and do in Leicestershire
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.

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.

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.

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, 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 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.
