Leicester City guide, including Leicester Hotels

On first impression, Leicester is a resolutely modern thriving city and
the county town, with two universities. The city has good shopping
facilities with pedestrian friendly shopping streets and the Shires
Shopping Centre. There are traces of its medieval and Roman past. The
Romans, choosing this site in the middle of the territory of the
rebellious Coritani, developed Leicester's precursor, Ratae
Coritanorum, as a fortified town on the Fosse Way, the military road
running from Lincoln to Cirencester.

Places of interest:

There is a large Indian population with a good Hindu temple. For sport,
there is a racecourse, and successful Rugby, Football and Cricket
teams. Outside the city, there are wild moor land and woods at
Bradgate, and at Swithland there is a reservoir and golf course.

  • Jewry Wall museum records the city's past on the site of Roman
    baths, and has mosaic pavements. In the Roman times the settlement at
    Leicester was the capital of Coritani. It also charts Leicester's
    history from prehistoric to medieval times. The most interesting
    artefacts are Roman, a hotchpotch of archaeological finds from Fosse
    Way milestones to two splendid mosaics.

  • Jain Centre is based in a totally revamped old Congregational
    chapel. The rites and beliefs of the Jains, a long-established Indian
    religious sect, focus on an extreme reverence for all living things.
    The temple, the only one of its kind in Western Europe, has a
    splendidly garish white marble facade, and visitors may enter the lobby
    or even view the interior by prior appointment.

  • Newarke Houses Museum, located in the 1511 Chantry House, two
    adjoining Jacobean houses, makes a pleasant setting for an exploration
    of the town's social history.

  • St Martins Cathedral is built on a Saxon site, and former Roman
    temple. By the 8th century Leicester had a bishop, though the bishopric
    lapsed in 874 A.D. and was not re-instated until 1926 which is when the
    14th century St. Martinís Church became a cathedral.

  • Leicestershire Museum & Art Gallery, located on the New Walk,
    has a 'Discovery' room for children, an art collection and ever
    changing exhibitions. It is easily the best of the city's museums.

  • Things to do:

    Leicester's Hindu population put on a massive and internationally
    famous Diwali, Festival of Light, in October or November, while the
    city's sizeable Afro-Caribbean community celebrates its culture in a
    whirl of colour and music on the first weekend in August.

  • Bradgate Park is where you can find the picturesque ruins of
    Bradgate House, birthplace of Lady Jane Grey, who was Queen of England
    in 1554 for just nine days.

  • Charnwood Forest has a wealth of country parks providing wonderful
    walks and views. Other beauty spots include the rocky summit of Beacon
    Hill and the long ridge occupied by the Outwoods. Billa Barra and Altar
    Stones are unusual hills on the west side of Charnwood, whilst
    Broombriggs Farm, Windmill Hill and Groby Pool add to the variety.

  • Rutland Water is a reservoir in the east of the county. When it was
    constructed, various areas were set aside to cater for different types
    of leisure pursuits. At the eastern end, sailing and sail boarding are
    popular, while in the central section trout fishing takes place, both
    from boats and from the shore. The western part of the reservoir is a
    nature reserve, but throughout the year large numbers of water birds
    can be seen in all sections of the reservoir.

  • Abbey Park is Leicesterís premier park and lies approximately one
    mile north of the City centre. The River Soar divides this beautiful
    park into two distinct areas: to the east of the river lies the highly
    decorative Victorian part of the park with its evergreen shrubberies,
    trees, lakes and formal flower displays. To the west lies the
    fascinating Abbey Grounds where the remains of the twelfth century
    Leicester Abbey and the ruins of Cavendish House, a seventeenth century
    mansion are located.

  • Foxton Locks comprises ten canal locks consisting of two
    "staircases" of five locks and is located on the Leicester line of the
    Grand Union Canal. Staircase locks are used where a canal needs to
    climb a steep hill, and consist of groups of locks which open directly
    into each other. Foxton Locks are the largest flight of staircase locks
    on the English canal system. The locks are a popular tourist attraction
    and the county council has created a country park at the top.

  • Food & Drink:

    People come from miles around to eat in Leicesterís Indian restaurants.

  • Bobby's is one of the most famous restaurants in the city. It is
    run by Gujaratis, and this moderately priced place is strictly
    vegetarian and uses no garlic or onions; if you're here on a weekend,
    try their delicious house speciality, undhyu, or the multi-flavoured
    Bobby's Special Chaat.

  • Thali specialises in set meals, where several different dishes,
    breads and pickles are served together on large steel plates.

  • Stones Restaurant is where you will get served a tasteful selection
    of fine wines and great European cuisine, including excellent tapas, in
    a trendy environment with candlelit tables. A place for those "smart
    casual" occasions.

  • Rosie OíBrienís is a really fun pub in the centre of Leicester.
    They have plenty of entertainment and good food and drink those appeals
    to all ages from 19 to 70 years old. With a lively trouble free
    atmosphere anyone who comes here will be in for a great time

  • The Counting House is located in what used to be the old cattle
    market, 150 years ago; you can come along to enjoy a good drink in a
    lively atmosphere. Good pub food is available from their own menu which
    includes homemade favourites. Why not join us for Sunday lunch when we
    offer a choice of two roasts.

  • The Bakers Arms in Blaby is one of those pubs you donít often see
    nowadays, with low-beamed ceilings and cosy nooks and crannies; it
    oozes atmosphere and days of long gone service and civility.

  • Leicester Hotels & Accommodation:

    The hotels and accommodation in the city of Leicester are geared for
    the business traveller, with most of the large chain hotels having
    outlets there. For the traveller seeking smaller hotels or guest
    houses, these can be found in the outlying villages on the edge of the
    Charnwood Forest or in the towns of Loughborough, and Market
    Harborough. All Ideal bases for seeing Leicester and Leicestershire

    University, the Centre is now a major venue for the performing arts,
    providing a contemporary programme that is different from, but
    associated with, the Haymarket.

  • De Montfort Hall is the city's main concert hall and is on
    Granville Road - adjoining Victoria Park at the end of New Walk. Here
    you can see a programme range from jazz, ballet, comedy and opera to
