Blaby is a village in Leicestershire that sits on the southern bank of the Union Canal, with picturesque buildings and a lovely church dating back to 1327, home to 6,240 people. A walking Trail takes you around Glen Parva and the old Saxon Settlement. For lovers of museums the problem is definitely where to start, perhaps Wigston Framework Knitters Museum, where machines are housed in a 1700ís Hosierís house, or how about The National Gas Museum where 4000 exhibits including a 1920ís kitchen, a radio, and even a gas hairdryer will intrigue most visitorsÖ Newarke Houses Museum which also includes the Royal Leicestershire Regiment Museum is tempting, the wonderful exhibits include a WW1 Trench, and a 1940ís street complete with shops. Or there is always the stunning National Space Centre, experience a Rocket launch or blast off on a mission to the Ice Moon, with six themed galleries and a domed Space Theatre a scintillating experience is sure to be had. For animal lovers a visit to Gorse Hill City Farm offers the chance to meet many animals, or perhaps you prefer to watch fine Race Horses doing what they do best, all can be yours at Leicester Race Course.
