Living in Leicester

A step back in time

For history lovers, living in Leicester is a dream. Synonymous with King Richard III), the city has a towering Cathedral - one of six mentioned in the Domesday book -, a 14th-century Guildhall and a 700-hundred-year-old outdoor market. Take a stroll down one of its ancient streets and discover Roman, Anglo-Saxon and even Victorian architecture. You’ll never run out of things to explore after buying a home here.

A rich heritage provides a great variety of things to do, such as free museums and galleries, sights to see and themed events held throughout the year. You can also take a step further and head into wider Leicestershire and visit Belvoir Castle or Foxton Locks, or you can even take a ride on a steam train at the county’s Great Central Railway.

Music and more

For those who’d rather focus on the present, Leicester has lots to offer in terms of amenities and nightlife. It has its own high street lined with popular brands and restaurants, and you can also find a cinema, climbing centre and adventure golf in the city, too. Independent shops and stalls populate the local market, and there are picturesque parks and green spaces for when you need a moment’s peace.

Leicester is also known for its music scene, with big names like Kasabian and Basement Jaxx having roots in the city. We’ve already mentioned the iconic Guildhall, but other music venues include De Montfort Hall, which has seen The Beatles, Amy Winehouse and Hendrix take its stage. If you’re ever looking for a night out in the city, you’ll likely find a gig around the corner from your new home.
