Loughborough is a busy town in Leicestershire, with a Market held twice a week since the 13th Century. The town is the centre for bell making, and a tour around the Bell Foundry Museum, where exhibits tell the story, see the foundry that cast the bell hanging in St Paul’s Cathedral in London. The attractive Grand Union Canal courses through the town, and whether you walk the tow paths or sail on one of the Narrow Boats keeping company with swans and ducks it‘s idyllic, time it right and the annual Loughborough Festival will be on. The Great Central Railway is the only track in the country where two steam trains may pass each other, why not dine in style in first class, travel back in time during the day or evening, and marvel at the recreation of different eras as you pass through the stations. If you enjoy discovering the treasure inside a Medieval Manor House try The Old Rectory Museum or there is always the replica Victorian Grocers Shop at The Charnwood Museum, or see the fossils, or perhaps zoom in on a centipede’s head, take a look at the Jurassic Reptile that swims under the floor of the Museum. If the thrill of the great outdoors beckons how about Beacon Hill Country Park, which is the second highest point in Leicestershire and is blessed with stunning views of Charnwood Forest, add ponds with frogs, and a Bronze Age Hill Fort dating back 3,000 years and whether you walk, cycle or go on horse back it’s lovely. With many bars and restaurants and the covered Shopping Mall at Carillon Court, or shops at Church Gate Mews or The Rushes, what more could a town offer perhaps a 14th Century church with ten bells …Loughborough has many treasures worth discovering.
