Leicester is where north meets south, east meets west and world cultures meet and mix together. Unusual shops, interesting attractions, fine restaurants and a vibrant nightlife have all contributed to Leicester’s recent style revolution. Discover the National Space Centre, the city’s spectacular visitor attraction for the 21st century. The only centre of its kind in the UK, it will take you on a journey through the universe and beyond! If you enjoy history, take a stroll around the Castle Park area of the city centre, to discover the fine buildings of Old Leicester. Many of the city’s museums are free to visit including the 14th century Guildhall and New Walk Museum with its dinosaur skeletons and German Expressionist art. If shopping is your favourite pastime, you won’t be disappointed. One of the country’s top shopping destinations, Leicester offers designer labels and all the big name stores. From the individuality of the Leicester Lanes to the exquisite sarees, jewellery and Asian sweets along the Belgrave Road, there really is something for every taste and pocket. Leicester boasts many stylish cafés, bars and restaurants. From champagne and vodka bars to award-winning curry houses, there’s plenty of choice for a night out. If you’re looking for entertainment can experience live music at De Montfort Hall, laugh your socks off at Jongleurs, or dance the night away at one of the city’s many clubs. Population 345,000
