In contrast to the cosmopolitan feel of its county town, Leicestershire has some of the least known hidden gems of the English countryside. Incorporating part of the National Forest, it’s picture perfect villages offer quintessential English county living at more affordable prices than England’s more southerly counties.
Leicestershire’s second city of Loughborough is home to Loughborough University, named as top Sports University of the Year by The Sunday Times Good University Guide and 6th in the Guardian University League Tables for 2018. Large towns include Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Market Harborough, Melton Mowbray, Oadby and Lutterworth, all with their own individual charm. With a wealth of historical sites and country parks, it is a county with much to explore. With excellent transport links to the north and south via the M1/A1, Yorkshire and London can also be easily accessed by the Midland Main Rail Line and the east and west by the Birmingham – Stansted Rail line.
East Midlands Airport is also on hand for many international and domestic flights for those wishing to travel further afield.
