What to get up to in Leicester

And there’s plenty to get up to here once you have arrived. Whether you’re taking a trip to the National Space Centre, going to see the spot where Richard III was buried and recently discovered or indeed going to visit the University of Leicester itself you won’t be short of things to get up to once you’re in town.

Our advice? Wherever it is you end up sightseeing during your stay make sure to have a quick tour of the cathedral while you’re here.
