Discover Leicester

Situated at the heart of England, Leicester is well connected - just 70 minutes from London by train and 30 minutes from an international airport. This vibrant and diverse city is just a short walk from campus so you are never far from the action.

Leicester is large enough that you will always be able to find something new and exciting to do, but compact enough that you will feel as though you have got to know it as somewhere you can call home.

With two universities in the city centre, 12% of Leicester’s population are students so there is always something happening whether you’re into sport, culture and the arts, shopping or going out.

You can explore Leicester’s rich history, from its Roman origins, associations with King Richard III and the recent past, through its varied museums. New Walk Museum and Art Gallery near the campus is particularly worth visiting and holds a permanent exhibition of Picasso ceramics.

Leicester has a rich sporting history.  Premier League winners Leicester City Football Club has a colourful history and plays host to the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal at the King Power Stadium. Rugby fans will need no encouragement to watch the formidable Leicester Tigers, England’s most successful rugby club. With a squad full of world-class players, an afternoon at the boisterous Welford Road stadium is not to be missed.
