There’s always something new to do in Leicester, from great family attractions and days out to top class restuarants, bars, pubs, cinemas and theatres.

Leicester is also a great shopping city, with the Highcross shopping centre, The Lanes and the world-famous market making the city centre a great destination for shoppers. Outside the city, Fosse Park is a hugely popular (and very busy!) shopping centre boasting a number of well-known brands and retailers.

In terms of days out, Leicester hosts a number of fun and educational destinations like the National Space Centre, the Richard III centre, New Walk Museum and the Jewlry Wall Museum.
