Near the very centre of England lies Leicester. Leicester is proud of its rich historical heritage stretching back in the mists of time to the Celtic inhabitants; through to modern times. Leicester's history has everything from classical Roman, mythical Kings, medieval Earls and industrial revolution. Truly there is something for everyone!
