Leicester Days Out

Trips to Leicester should allow just about the right amount of time to see a few of the local attractions while enjoying the history and ambiance of this orderly and pleasant British Town. This is one of the oldest towns in a country know for their old towns. If you are flying in or if you have secured the services of a Leicester coach hire company then you will want to get settled in your hotel if your plans involve an overnight stay.  The best approach is to get checked in, go for a quick swim or spend some time in the hotel fitness centre before enjoying a quick dinner in the hotel and going to bed early. You will wake up rested and refreshed the next morning and anxious to begin your day of sightseeing.

Since Leicester is a very compact city, especially in the city centre, it is best to plan for a lot of walking within the main part of town. There is a good bus network and many bicycle paths if that is your preferred method of getting around. In the morning you may wish to bike through Abbey Park or Bradgate Park before stopping at one of the many famous Indian restaurants in this multicultural city. After lunch and a quick tour of the National Space Centre, you might want to head for the Belvoir Brewery, which gives tours with a free sampling session at the end. If you are still looking for more to do in the late afternoon you may wish to take in some of the local entertainment venues or a dining experience in one of the many famous international restaurants nearby. You may wish to have your coach pick you up after dinner as there are some areas of the city that are not safe after dark.
